ALLAH Says , ' Mankind must not vaccinate because it is from the Devil for spreading diseases , for dominating , for programming , the Children of Adam will be ( controlled as robborts ) by the Devil , and for the mark of the Beast 666 . ALLAH Says , ' We are on error , our forefathers were not Guided they denied the Guidence and the Holy Books of ALLAH has been altered ( distorted and some text taken out of context ) by the Devil . ALLAH Says , ' The celebration of easter must be stopped because it is not Jesus Christ who was crucified on the cross , it was Judas'chariot the traitor . Jesus son of Mary is not the lord . Jesus Christ is not the begotten son of god . ALLAH Says , ' There is no trinity ( in the name of the father , of the son , and of the Holy Spirit ) . There is no one who died for anyone's sins . There is no blood that clearnse anyone's sins , all was invented by the Devil . Everything is explained on my time line , please share the message and help many .

    I'm glad this platform is allowing indigenous peoples of Brazil to be heard! Too often, colonization forces get the messaging and block out the population that has been in the region because the colonizers just come to take. Brazil's government of recent years has encouraged burning and clear-cutting while attacking the indigenous communities. From the climate perspective, loosing the rainforest of the Amazon is terrifying. The indigenous communities are not unconnected to the rest of the world and that allows them the ability to reach outside influences. He mentioned the Yanomami. I got my degree in Cultural Anthropology and remember learning about connecting with these people many decades ago, when they were not incorporated into the wider communities of European-based colonial occupation. This was presented to me as a perspective piece. The difference between the visitor who came to interact and learn but also to understand how the visitor was perceived by the Yanomami people. Cultural Anthropology is all about context in a culture and how different communities exist around each other, so as a student watching the film by the European visitor, we were getting that person's perspective but watching both trying to understand where the people interacted and how the visitor needed to honor boundaries that the Yanomami set. It is all too often, a country with an international presence, such as Brazil (in this case) gets to claim the narrative and pushes the indigenous communities to the side with a concept that they aren't modern peoples (which is nonsense because they have to live and fight oppression with the tools of today, to continue to exist). The last I'd heard of the indigenous peoples of Brazil, they were fighting the construction of a hydroelectric dam that would flood and displace whole communities.

    Something that’s this important shouldn’t be unheard, it’s a generational legacy that the rainforests of our planet provide 🌎 . They sustain a fine balance in our climate & production of oxygen we all need.
