« You do not know how to do anything with the forest. You only know how to cut down and burn its trees, to dig holes in its floor and soil its watercourses.
Yet it does not belong to you and none of you created it! »
- Yanomami shaman and spokesman Davi Kopenawa
Indigenous peoples use the water in the rivers and streams in their ancestral territories for drinking, cooking, bathing and fishing.
Gold mining and other extractive industries contaminate the water, poisoning people, wildlife and the soil.
Please help Indigenous peoples and Nature; please boycott all products from deforestation; gold, palm oil, exotic wood, soy, beef, etc.!
