Survival International

Survival International

Survival International is a human rights organisation formed in 1969 that campaigns for the rights of indigenous tribal peoples and uncontacted peoples and helps them to determine their own future. Their campaigns generally focus on tribal peoples' fight to keep their ancestral lands, culture and their own way of living. Their headquarters are in London, and they have offices in Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Milan and Amsterdam.

:"If we want to help societies our first job is to listen, rather than to dictate what we think they need, and we must be prepared to be surprised. This is not just to do with remote tribal peoples: it's of vital relevance to all in a world where ideas of multiculturalism are misunderstood and under attack and where some increasingly want to force their views on others." Stephen Corry, Director of Survival International, April 2007

"Songs for Survival"

In 2008 Kensaltown Records released an album of tribal crossover music, "Songs for Survival" where all the profits went to Survival International.
