3/ Observe now the distribution of #indigenous reserves in Amazonia, which, BTW, should cover ALL OF AMAZONIA: the land was stolen from them. It still belongs to a country called #Brazil. There are fascist in power - we're going to kick them out.

4/ This was my job talk for the Latin American studies position at one prestigious American University in 2000. Two of us were shortlisted. This is one of the slides. I still believe in what I wrote and explained.

5/ It's a great idea to stop talking about Amazonia as if it were just "a place" and a "world resource". It is important to the whole world but it belongs to a country (currently under illegitimate fascist power, but this, too, shall pass). That would be #Brazil.

And above all, these folks here have priority. Don't ignore that. It really pisses us off.
