Spreading stories from the Amazon #Amazonsourceoflife

The Pan Amazon region has been historically conceived as a space that must be occupied, controlled and integrated according to external interests, since at first it was considered a wasteland. It is from the discovery of its natural resources that it was positioned as a priority region, yet still there is an association with ‘backwardness’ – of being apart from the urban centrality – and as a place that has a demographic gap. This allows external economic and power groups to assume it as a territory available to serve their interests, and the Amazon’s immense richness in culture, fauna and flora becomes invisible. In fact, it is not the “backyard” but the “central square” of the planet. It is a biome, that is, a living system that functions as a regional and global climate stabilizer that produces 1/3 of the rains that feed the earth.

Within this framework, we consider the role of the media fundamental in order to make visible and publicise the Amazon reality, its challenges, threats, and affectations, as well as the portraits and testimonies of the indigenous peoples and Amazonian communities that day by day respond to this reality, from their organizational processes, their own weaknesses, their spirituality and their ever strong resistance, as guardians of the lung of the planet.

A group of media professionals and journalists with a special sensitivity to international and social issues participated this summer in a special media tour of the borders between Colombia, Peru, and Brazil organised by REPAM (Daniela Andrade, Comms Officer) and CIDSE (Marta Isabel González, Media and Communications Officer). The objective was to launch a media cycle or reporting about the questions related to the upcoming Synod on the Pan Amazon and promote the messages of the Amazon region among European and North American audiences. The resulting reports have been published in English, French, German and Spanish depending on the publication of the journalist.

  • Tom Phillips, Latin American correspondent from The Guardian (General Newspaper)
  • Claire Lesegretain from La Croix (Catholic General Newspaper)
  • Manuel Cubías from Vatican News (Agency News)
  • Brigitte Krautgartner from ORF (Radio)
  • Angeles Conde and Marco Galassi from Rome Reports (TV Agency News)
  • Ana Palacios (Spanish freelance Photojournalist)

The travel has been organised in a participative way with proposals from all CIDSE’s member organisations and REPAM, in order to create a heterogenic, international and select group of media professional and journalists with ties to publications that could achieve the objective.
