Activists have expressed anger after it was announced that an indigenous ‘guardian of the forest’ had been shot dead by illegal loggers. Paulo Paulino Guajajara and another tribesman, Laercio Guajajara, were ambushed late on Friday while patrolling the Arariboia territory in the northeastern state of Maranhao. Both men are members of the Guardians of the Forest, a group of more than 100 tribesmen who attempt to protect their land from criminal logging gangs. Paulo Paulino was shot in the neck and died in the jungle, according to Survival International, a group that defends indigenous rights. Laercio was shot in the back but managed to escape. The two men had left their village to look for water when the attack occurred, the Maranhao government’s human rights secretariat said on Twitter.
