Not satisfied with exterminating other species, we're now really making progress with exterminating ourselves.

This is man doing what he does best, taking what does not belong to him and destroying the land and the forest. Running the people and the animals that live there away. And in some cases, killing them. They cut down trees and drill for oil, all because of GREED. This land belongs to these people, they have been living in these forest for years and they do not bother anybody. They are peaceful people. These people need to be left ALONE, this is there home, NOT yours to take and do whatever you want with it because of GREED. This is all man thinks about is taking what he wants and destroying it. Leave these people ALONE, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!
