Kenya: Let the Sengwer live on their land in peace


The Sengwer people in Kenya have a deep, centuries-old bond with the beautiful Embobut Forest. But this Indigenous community of beekeepers and cattle herders is being violently evicted by the Kenyan government.

The authorities have burned homes and forced thousands off their ancestral land. One man has been shot dead and another seriously injured. The Sengwer are determined to resist – let’s support them.

Take Action: Send a message to the Kenyan president today, telling him to stop the house burnings and arrests, and remove all restrictions so that the Sengwer people can live in peace on their ancestral land in the Embobut Forest.
