VIDEO: Northern Argentina Bishop seeks climate justice

In the Diocese of Northern Argentina in the Anglican Church of South America, Bishop Nicolas Drayson relates how the lives of Indigenous people in the Chaco region have been affected by extensive and continuing deforestation: “In a very real sense the [Indigenous communities] weep for the cutting down of the forest because it is the destruction of their home. As we face climate change we mourn for the destruction of our home, our planet. The changes that are taking place don’t affect just one part of the world; they affect us all, and particularly those without a voice – the Indigenous people.”
