"The 450-strong tribe depends on the forest for survival. But the Aw report that hunting has become increasingly difficult as the game is disappearing, and they fear attacks by the armed loggers."

BASTARD LOGGERS!

My prayers go out to these poor people. I believe the Brazilian government doesn't do anything to help them because they just don't care. Shame on them! Don't forget to BOYCOTT the 2016 Olympics in Rio! Money talks!
