For the past five years, the community of Saweto has been fighting for justice against all odds.
In 2014, four renowned environmental activist leaders - Edwin Chota, Jorge Rios, Francisco Pineda and Leoncidio Quintisima - were massacred by illegal loggers deep in the Peruvian Amazon.
Recently, two logging comany executives and three loggers have been charged with the murders. While this unprecedented accusation brings hope, it also brings fear of reprisals to this isolated, vulnerable community.
To ensure the safety of the families of the victims, they need to be relocated from their community for several months as the judicial process proceeds.
