Rainforest Destruction

The Brazilian Chamber of Deputies has approved catastrophic legislation that will allow farmers to destroy much more of the vital Amazon rainforest, vital to us all (CLICK). Of immediate concern is the plight of the Awá people, described by Survival International as the "World's most endangered tribe" (CLICK for a BBC slide show). Above is a photo of Awá Tribespeople in their natural environment. Below is the Devastation of Awá Land when illegal loggers have been at work. If any Awá are caught by the loggers, they are murdered. Actor Colin Firth says: "One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil’s Minister of Justice. But it’s just not his priority. Let’s push it up his list." CLICK to visit Survival International, to watch a video and sign the petition.
