The indigenous Paiter people of Brazil are desperate for help. Armed illegal loggers, and miners are invading their ancestral land, cutting trees, poisoning rivers and threatening the forest dwellers at gunpoint. Thousands of trees are cut every day, and some 300 truckloads of timber leave the area daily. Rivers are being contaminated with mercury and cyanide.
Tell the Brazilian government to stop this unfolding environmental and humanitarian disaster NOW!To The Brazilian Government, President Michel Temer And Government Ministers:
Brazil’s indigenous Paiter people have issued an emergency call to the global community. The Brazilian government has not responded to this call for help, and with its silence, is contributing to the destruction of the rainforest and the demise of the Paiter people.
As concerned citizens of the world, we call on you on behalf of the Paiter: Please take all necessary measures to ensure the long-term protection of the 250,000 hectares of rainforest and guarantee the survival and rights of the Paiter people without delay.
