Over 1900 environmental activists killed for their work over last decade, new report says

Between 2012 and 2022, at least 1,910 people advocating for environmental protection were killed worldwide, a new report finds.

In 2022 alone, 177 environmental activists were murdered, or roughly one every other day, according to Global Witness, a U.K.-based watchdog group. “Violence, intimidation, and harassment are also being inflicted to silence defenders around the world,” Shruti Suresh, of Global Witness, said in a statement.
