    Unhappy Very powerful pic...



    Chief Raoni crying when he learned that the President of Brazil approved the Belo Monte dam project on the Xingu indigenous lands. Belo Monte will be bigger than the Panama Canal, flooding nearly a million acres of rainforest & indigenous lands. 40,000 indigenous and local people will be forced off their native lands (as well as millions of unknown species & plants) In the name of "progress"....

    Now this is why I keep saying that it is by no means enough to have a woman elected to high office; the president's decision to approve the clearing of thousands of acres of rainforest for a dam show that it is vital that we also fight to introduce female-centred politcs as well. Contrast her decision to allow the construction of the dam against the Green Belt Movement created by the recently departed Wangari Maathai

    It's the 21st century. No reason why a segment of the population should remain in the jungle.

    some of these people don't have the same concept of "time" as we do. again, it's a different way of life.
