Governments are supposed to protect their citizens, not screw them!

Sadly, many governments now rule for vested interests not the people.

So agree with you Phyllis Baxter--disgusting how people are treated. None of them care about anything except their pockets. God Bless all who love Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

The Awa, the Xingu and I don't know how many other indigenous peoples are in danger due to the unwillingness of the government of Brazil to protect its people. Please join me by boycotting the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio in protest!
