Thank you Cal noted. So many untold stories around the world. Kudos to these brave people who have very little that stand up and fight for their rights and their environment.

There's always something illegal on the market. How does this happen?? Obviously, monitoring of illegal items (unless they are drugs) is unheard of. Fricking ridiculous!!

WE need more trees lots of them not less.Heavy fines should be leveled on those who purchase illegal timber and make it unprofitable to cut down these forests.

....."Local people who depend on the forest have proved to be its most effective guardians - but they need external support." We cannot expect them to do it alone

NOTED, SHARED ARTICLE ON FB - DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING TO SIGN - WHICH IS OK - UNLESS i MISSED SOMETHING.

I SUSPECT MOST OF US HERE SUPPORT THESE FOLKS BUT SOMETIMES IT SEEMS NEVER-ENDING. I WONDER WHY WE (HUMANITY) ARE STILL SO HELL-BENT ON DESTRUCTION (SELF-DESTRUCTION INCLUDED)
