with eyes open wide
News like this makes me sooo mad. It makes me want to drop everything I am doing and head to the scene to protest and bring this issue to the world. Because that’s probably the only sort of pressure that will eventually stop the illegal activity and killings in the Amazon.
Sure, we’ve heard that the rainforest is being destroyed for many many years now. And now it’s to the level where one environmental activist dies per week for this cause. And let’s be a bit more frank, these innocent people are murdered simply for doing their best to protect the largest rainforest in the world, and the home to thousands of people (and let’s not even get on the topic of the damage to animals’ habitats).
WHEN WILL WE STOP TURNING OUR EYES FROM THIS TRAVESTY?
