Calls were growing to stop “genocide” inside Brazil’s Amazon, as the UN marked the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination yesterday.
Loggers have reportedly invaded the Amazon home of uncontacted Awá Indians in Brazil. One of them has allegedly been "burnt alive".
A report reveals that the home of the nomadic Awá tribe suffered more deforestation than any other indigenous territory in the Amazon in 2009.
Members of the tiny Awá tribe in the Brazilian Amazon will tomorrow begin a three-day protest in response to remarks by the local mayor’s office denying that the Awá exist.
