    It should be considered a human rights violation if the Brazilian president intentionally lifts protection of protected areas. If he does countries should proceed with sanctions.

    Just a question, why can't all these wealthy people, just go in a buy all these blocks of land in name only, so the animals, the vegetation , the native people can just do what they do best. Why is this not so.?

    How do we help? And don't say a petition.... if a petition can't get the second last episode of Game of Thrones remade, it can't save the Brazilian rainforest either.

    These tribes were here long before the so called 'civilized' people. It's their land, they should be allowed to continue existing in it, as it was meant. I'm a white person, but I SO, SO hate my kind sometimes.
