Photos by Charlie Hamilton James @chamiltonjames | Fires raged in the Brazilian Amazon during 2017 in Araribóia, indigenous territory in the state of Maranhão. Some were started by farmers trying to clear land for crops or cattle, others started to cover up illegal logging operations, and some were natural. When these images were shot, the Brazilian Amazon had just experienced its worst year on record for forest fires—now 2019 is likely to eclipse that. Maranhão, like so many other states within the Amazon, has been extensively logged, and just a few pockets of original forest remain. The rest of the land has been turned over to agriculture and cattle ranches. Within a few miles of where these pictures were taken live some of the last remaining uncontacted Awã people—made famous across the world a few weeks ago, when footage of them was released. The forests in Araribóia are protected by a disparate group of underfunded firefighters made up of brave and dedicated Guajajara tribe members, volunteers, and FUNAI (the National Indian Foundation) employees who take on fires, sometimes armed with nothing more than machetes.

Let’s also make Saudi crude and Russian natural gas reserves a Humanity Strategic Resource. After all the world needs energy. What about African forests? Let’s kick out all European companies who have been mining there since God knows when and preserve the entire continent! Let’s make France, Holand, Belgium, Portugal and UK pay for all the destruction they did in Africa for centuries! What about Groeland! Let’s take it from Norway! WE MUST KEEP IT’S NATURE UNTAPED! LET’S MAKE IT GLOBAL! On top of that, let’s track all the Indigenous who were kicked out of Europe centuries ago and give their land BACK. Let’s do it NOW! The world belongs to the Indigenous! European territories, US, Russia, India, China! Let’s make Australia and New Zealand STOP MINING NOW! That territory is being DESTROYED by Anglo American, BHP Billington, Rio Tinto! Otherwise let’s quit the hypocrisy…… if someone what’s to take over Amazonia, Brazilian sovereign territory, the only alternative is come and try to get it. I am sure many can come, but won’t leave here alive.

I wonder what well happen if they use the land for cattle or crop farming. Maybe people will actually stand up to the government
