Many Awá are still uncontacted, and they are running for their lives. 'One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil's Minister of Justice. But it's just not his priority. Let's push it up his list.' -- Colin Firth

Many of Brazil's Awá are still uncontacted, and they are running for their lives.
A wave of illegal loggers, settlers and ranchers have invaded their lands, and time is running out.

Today Colin Firth helps us to launch a major new campaign to save the Awá, and we need your help.

Please watch our new film, and take a few seconds to send a message to Brazil's Minister of Justice: he can send in the federal police to catch the loggers, and keep them out for good. And, even more importantly, please share this with your family and friends.

If enough people show they care, it will work.

‘In the city, we feel the same insecurity that outsiders do in the forest,’
says an Awá man named Blade. But the dense Amazon forests that used to clothe vast areas of northeast Brazil have all but disappeared. Not to be replaced by cities, but by a wasteland of seemingly endless cattle ranches. The last stand of these once great forests, some of the most ancient in all the world, are where tribal peoples have resisted the ranchers’ and loggers’ advances.

This is the story of one tribe, the Awá hunter-gatherers, and their extraordinary love affair with the forest. A story of resistance, destruction, of hope, and, perhaps, survival.
