« Hey – Look at me
We see you
We tried to show you
You never bothered to learn our language
You were always looking down
We’ve been warning you since the beginning
The land is alive
This land can’t be owned
This land is us
All of us
You wanted the stones
Your shiny things
Titles – Flags – Profits
You called that progress
We tried to teach you
But you’ve always been so greedy
Too primitive – Too savage
Now you still bring curses over the Yanomami
And once again we are dying because of it
And all indigenous land is being turned into
ashes and mud
You never looked up to discover
what we were holding in place
The sky itself
Your cities can see it
Your crops can see it
Your kids can see it
We can see it in your lungs
Take a deep breath
Open your eyes and look up
Can you finally see it ?
Help the Yanomami hold up the sky »

Brazil’s Congress is now fast-tracking a « death package » bill, PL191, in order to « legally » mine on protected Indigenous lands!
Meanwhile, Brazil’s justice minister is planning to give president Bolsonaro a medal of « Indigenous merit » for protection and promotion of Indigenous peoples!
Brazilian Indigenous association APIB will contest this in court!
One of the best ways to help preserve the Amazon Rainforest is to directly help the Indigenous peoples who are protecting it! Please join me in supporting the Apib, the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil.
They do far more than just petition governments who are benefitting financially from the ongoing destruction. Apib is assisting Indigenous communities address ongoing health issues and they, along with Indigenous lawyers, are taking the Brazilian government to court!
Apib informs us that the Indigenous mobilizations during the month of April are confirmed. The biggest mobilization, the Acampamento Terra Livre (the Liberate Our Land camp), is scheduled to take place between the 4th and 8th of April 2022, in Brasília, in the Federal District.
Let’s Demarcate Brasilia!
