      Brazil expels loggers in rare operation to protect threatened tribe

      RIO DE JANEIRO (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Brazilian authorities have expelled a group of illegal loggers and ranchers from a remote area of the Amazon in a risky and rare operation to protect a threatened indigenous tribe.

      The Kawahiva are nomadic hunter-gatherers who live in one of Brazil’s most lawless areas and have no contact with mainstream society. Campaigners say their survival is threatened by intruders seeking to profit from the forest’s vast resources.

      On Tuesday Funai, the government agency that represents indigenous people’s interests, said it had evicted five “non-indigenous” people from the area in a joint operation with the environmental protection agency.

      It’s not like we can replace this biological gem once it’s gone. This would be a reason for fighting a war, a real reason instead of a false flag like 911.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      Just the illegal loggers? It’s hard to believe that Brazil is still allowing any part of the Amazon to be cut.
