Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact

Rise! Resist! Unite!

One Billion Rising activists are calling for RISING GARDENS, a global grassroots call for revival, restoration, and transformation, making the connection between violence against women and destruction of the earth. During the pandemic, activists are expanding their reach online as they simultaneously deepen their reach on the ground, community work to meet the needs of the moment. Rising Gardens actions amplify the intersectional issues of women’s inequality and its impact on food insecurity, land ownership and the lack of access to healthcare, as well as the long term effects from extractive industries and the destruction of Mother Earth, and other basic rights, especially for frontline and marginalized indigenous communities.
The Network of Indigenous Women (NIWA) stands in power for the rights and resources of our indigenous sisters in Asia.
