Rio Fishermen in Deadly Feud over Oil Complex

Rio Fishermen in Deadly Feud over Oil Complex


All too desperately aware of the threat of death hanging over them, some of Rio de Janeiro’s fishermen are gearing up for another possible blockade to protest the damage they say oil company Petrobras has caused their livelihood. Two of their colleagues were murdered in June — making it four murders in the last three years — believed to be retaliation for the group’s activism.

When are politicians world wide going to wake up to the malignancy of oil companies/corporations and divest themselves of participation in destruction of people, places, ecology and environment?

If and when the brave do that - their job - we may begin to get back control and not have to live by the amorality of corporations and bankers which is to the detriment of so much.

as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself, no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love
