Frontline Defenders

Indigenous human rights defender Ms Gloria Ushigua has been a target of increasing levels of harassment over the past month as a result of her peaceful and legitimate work in defence of environmental rights and her ancestral land. On 31 May 2016, five men sat outside Gloria Ushigua's home throughout the night, in what appeared to be an act of intimidation against the human rights defender.
