VIRTUAL RALLY: This week we're demanding that WWF stop funding abusive squads in central Africa. Just head over to their Facebook page now and post the following text:

"I'm urging WWF to stop funding the eviction and abuse of rainforest tribes in central Africa. It's a disaster for their lives, lands, and human rights, and it's harming conservation."
"They're still destroying the forest. It's tragic."

Imagine being forced into a violent first contact with industrial society. It would be pretty terrifying! That's exactly what happened to Wamaxua, and continues to happen across the Amazon.
