Ban Illegal Logging In The Amazon... Take Action...

But the real reasons why WE need to ban illegal logging is simple and something we ALL need to get behind, the displacement of indigenous Amazonian tribes, assaults and even murders of the indigenous people

It is a crying shame what they are doing in the Amazon basin. They are simply destroying the earth's lungs. No palm oil plantation or a corn field can substitute to the loss on Amazonian rainforessts. The threes' ability to produce oxygen and bind carbon with photosynthesis has kept the wold in good shape, until the industrial revolution started. We should turn back the clock and learn from the made mistakes, but it is too late. We need a global understanding to put a full stop to all logging and deforestation asap. But it is not going to be easy Everyone wants his piece of the "green revolution" called Palm Oil, Nothing can make up for lost rainforests, and some trees may have been lost for good, because they may have needed an animal to digest their fruit before it could germinate. That has happened to a forest, now dying, because dodo was hunted to extinction. And with all the lost forests we may have lost hundreds of species of fauna and flora; they could have had some medicinal properties against e.g. AIDS, cancers, Altzheimer''s disease, Parkinsons etc. What is lost is lost forever, and the saddest thing of all is that the world is now in the vice like grip of global warming. SAVE THE RAINFORESTS, SAVE ALL FORESTS, NO MORE LOGGING, NO MORE DEFORESTATION!

we can ban what is Illegal already what we need is better ways to stop it while it's happening. Cameras in the forest would help. This is a serious problem and these Illegal loggers don't care it's done for greed. Forest rangers living in the forests? Cameras? Even by Satellite it's hard to see this until the trees are gone. We need better ways of stopping this.

Indigenous peoples of the Amazon have lived freely using only what they have needed for their survival since time immemorial. We cannot and will not allow the destruction of their forests to force them into becoming an 'endangered species'. Their Human Rights will be protected!
