It's up to everyone of us,
to speak out and to defend Amazonia,


to defend the Amazonas River, the Xingu River ... 
to defend every river in Amazonia ...

to defend all creatures who live in Amazonia,
all the indigenous tribes, all the animals and plants ...

to defend all life in this beautiful part of Mother Earth, 
this planet's largest tropical rainforest.

Water is life.

DAMOCRACY
The Movie (English)
http://youtu.be/vnMD4e6nLms by Damocracy TV via YouTube
 
"Look what you are doing to my people. For the love of God. ...
Brazil refuses to show respect.
This is an affront to humanity. An affront to nature. ...
We shall not give up our rivers! ...
...

We have to unite. Definitely, that's the word: Unite.
And we have to continue to fight.
People need to understand that they hold the power.
We employ the government.
The government works for us.
We call the shots in this country.
They have to comply with our wishes.
That the Amazon is preserved, and our rights are respected!"
