Rights of Nature Tribunal was retained and later released in Isinuta – Bolivia

The Commission went to the Polígono 7 section on Sunday, August 19th, to listen to the parties after the invitation of CPITCO (Coordinator of Indigenous Peoples of the Cochabamba Tropics), however, upon their arrival they were detained at the Isinuta bridge, and were not allowed to communicate externally; by a blockade of settlers and coca producing farmers and a union of transporters who are in favor of the construction of a highway that crosses the TIPNIS. They were detained for more than five hours. The Commission was held back without being able to move forward, but also unable to return.
