Gotta love this one Wish I could help The govt screws the people again...
“We have been coming to these sacred cascades since before the time of Christ,” said Ankuash, preparing a palm-leaf spread of melon and mango. “The government has given away land that is not theirs to give, and we have a duty to protect it. Where there is industrial mining, the rivers die and we lose our way of life. They want us to give up our traditions, work in the mines, and let them pollute our land. But we will give our lives to defend the land, because the end is the same for us..."
Worth more than a look.
What is wrong with the Government nowdays? It seems that all they care about is being money hungry. What a shame. Land is made to be seen and admired - not ruined.

The time has come for the industrial world to go native and learn from indigenous peoples rather than destroying one of the few human templates for survival we have.
The evil sin of greed will drive people 2 destroy anything & everything!
when is their insatiable greed for what is not theirs going to end, when will they listen to those who have looked after and loved the land for eons.
The government doesn't seem to care about the beauty; only the MONEY. What a shame!
