[urgent] Please help avoiding another indigenous genocide by signing a petition before tomorrow
Hi PAUA friends, another genocide is about to happen in the Amazon Forest.
We need by tomorrow your signature on the petition. Benki Piyako leader of the Ashaninkas just left me a voice mail asking for all my help so I signed the petition and ask you to consider taking two minutes to sign it right now too.
Please share as much as you can as I just did this video and text leading to the petition. Thank you so much.
Here is a video of Chief Raoni explaining the situation and the full text of the request.
URGENT! In support of the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), we call on the international community to prevent a genocide in Brazil.
We ask you to share the following video of Chief Raoni along with the quoted message below (and adapt as needed), to be posted on your social media profiles urging for the signature of a global petition.
"URGENT! In support of the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil, APIB, we call on the international community to prevent a genocide in Brazil.
As citizens from all over the world, we are uniting our voices to demand urgent justice for the indigenous peoples of Brazil. We reinforce the cry of indigenous leaders from all over the Amazon Basin and beyond, and ask you to mobilize all the efforts within your power to prevent a historic injustice being committed by the House of Representatives against the indigenous peoples of Brazil. We refer to the upcoming voting of Bill 490/2007 and its appendices.
This is a matter of extreme urgency in terms of global climate change, the crisis of tropical deforestation and the human rights of indigenous peoples. Please share, divulgate, and ask all your followers and friends, to sign the petition and stop the approval of genocide.
Please read the open letter and sign the petition here: https://chng.it/GTFgqVw5 “
We, a collective of supporters aiming to uphold the respect for indigenous peoples cultures and lives
in Brazil and worldwide, thank you from the core of our hearts.
We are together!
