I think that the world needs a more environmentally sustainable economic system, which would stop destructive project proposals from being made. I like many of the ideas of CASSE at for a better economic system.

Thanks Cal....this is great news for the Awa Tribe. They need to leave these people ALONE. This land belongs to them, this is there home. I hope that the judge stops the mining company PERMANENTLY!!!!
