Dear Mr. De Schutter: 1. On behalf of the indigenous communities of Merauke, the twenty-two (22) Submitting Organizations that have signed this letter below (see Annex A), extend our deepest appreciation for your continued efforts on behalf of indigenous and marginalized people around the world who are increasingly becoming victims of large scale land acquisitions and concessions resulting in decreases in food security because of reductions in their ancestral territories. Indeed, the Submitting Organizations have read with interest and taken note with appreciation your work on “land grabbing.”
