Sorry, I think it's great news that the loggers are getting out of there, but what a price these poor people have had to pay.

I hope they can really do and succeed in removing the loggers away. Thanks Cal

Thanks Cal.. Great news,but I DO so hope that the loggers don't cause too much trouble for the people as they are not likely to leave quietly and without a struggle!

This is the FIRST good news for indigenous peoples I have heard in forever. I wish the very best for the indigenous peoples as this plays out, as well as for the government which is (finally) doing the right thing, which can't be easy at this point.

Wonderful news, Cal! Thanks for sharing. Loggers shouldn't be working anywhere near Indian tribes.

Wonderful news, like others I hope that the government follows through, that the loggers leave without protest and that the government ensures that no further illegal logging occurs.

Noted, thanks Cal for posting.
