The History Channel

We are shocked by the extreme exploitation that The History Channel's "BAMAZON" TV show shamelessly conveys: Putting desperate unemployed construction workers in life-threatening circumstances with the promise of gold at the same time as exploiting the natural environment which includes endangered habitat for thousands of species. The program manages to exploit impoverished Southern Americans (Alabamans, specifically) as well as South Americans (Guyanans, specifically), in addition to precious wildlife - all while packaged as entertainment. We find this disgusting and shameful, thus we request the immediate termination of this exploitative TV program.

Signed,

By signing this petition, we are stating that we are not going to sit passively while fellow Americans/humans/workers are being exploited due to their unemployed/out of work status in addition to their association by birth with southern poverty in Alabama. Everything about "BAMAZON" is perverted: The show continues an unfortunate American history of southern poverty and worker exploitation, as well as extreme environmental neglect. This is a true tragedy of the commons; We are a part of the problem if we don't take action against it.
