Gold and indiginous rights in the Amazon
« on: February 10, 2013, 08:18:09 pm »
http://www.salon.com/2013/02/10/to_get_the_gold_they_will_have_to_kill_every_one_of_us/

Salon.com put this article up today about how Amazonian peoples are defending their homelands from greedy corporations and governments.  I hadn't been aware that this was going on, and would like to spread the word and make people aware that the displacement of native peoples is still happening.  


(Hope I posted the link right... first time trying!)

I had heard that the indigenous peoples of the Amazon were still being threatened but I didn't know Gold was involved.  I don't understand greed.  What good does it do?
