Perhaps this will draw more attention and hopefully assistance? There must be a few good souls left? Thanks Cal.

Spaventoso! E pensare che la fiaccola delle Olimpiadi rappresenta una competizione sportiva tra popoli amici, che a suo tempo ai popoli indigeni del Brasile erano stati riconosciuti i diritti sulla loro terra!
Grazie Cal per condividere.

As this was set to be done last June 25th and we are 4 months down the road, I can't say I saw anything on this.

Certainly our mainstream TV news gave it no attention, all that is and has been on there is Hillary and Trump as if there is nothing else happening. It wouldn't even be a total waste if something substantial was being discussed that is truly affecting not only the people of the USA but the world including these people who are fighting for their very lives - along with so many in places like Yemen and Syria.

The rape of our lands, the global destruction causing climate disruption, the ceaseless wars to obtain the ever more scarce resources instead of moving to truly "green" economies. I'm tired of the wealthy and the privileged doing their symbolic "feel good" moves or perhaps using this as a PR move trying to improve the Olympics image after it displaced so many people to build the Olympics facilities and such, the murder of so many poor in the effort to "clean up" and make it more presentable for the wealthy to come and view.
