The river to freedom

The Amazonian Kichwa people have rowed down the Seine to publicise the plight of their rain forests exploited by oil miners and logging companies. Watch this wonderful video on their lives and arguments which summarise the threats of capitalism to all peoples on Earth at present.

In this video at the Guardian newspaper site, an Elder says:
Money is not life for us. Life for us is what we have here. We have to keep passing on the knowledge we have learned here about the earth, from nature. Only in that way can we defend this place.
