Paloma bernardi
"I learned about the work of ISA when supporting a campaign that fights for the removal of illegal miners who bring a lot of pain to the Yanomami Land. It was an opportunity to understand that looking at the indigenous people is to protect not only the forest, but their ancestors, the true caretakers of this land. ISA has a fundamental role in this task."

"ISA's main differential, in my view, is its “presence” in the countryside, at the edge, on the trails, on the existential peripheries. This presence is its greatest gift."
