This episode of the Green Interview features Atossa Soltani, the founder and Executive Director of Amazon Watch, an organization based in California that works to protect the Amazon basin and the rights of indigenous groups that call it home. She has been documenting and publicizing forest destruction and human rights abuses caused by extractive industries and large-scale energy projects throughout the Amazon and she has led successful campaigns to convince oil companies and international financial institutions to adopt stronger environmental and social standards. In this exclusive Green Interview, Atossa Soltani discusses Amazon Watch and the ongoing legal battles in support of indigenous people who are either resisting oil exploration in their territories or fighting for compensation as a result of pollution. Soltani also discusses her recent involvement with a global movement calling for rights of nature.
