Meet the forest guardians who refuse to be beaten. The tribes of the Amazon are fighting off criminal networks who are destroying the world's biggest rainforest.

Land-grabbing was supposed to have gone completely out of fashion in 1945.

Instead of which we tolerate - and often enthusiastically support - the ethnic cleansing of brown people throughout the world.

Meanwhile, Colombia just started a nation-wide 19-day lockdown. A couple weeks ago, we had to cancel a trip we had scheduled for this summer. My mother-in-law is 89, and in poor health, so we're very concerned about her.

I am sorry. You must be very worried

As Brazilian scientists estimate there are already between 500,000 and 1.1 million coronavirus cases, officials warn that Brazil's hospital systems are on the verge of collapse.

I'd need to know when Brazil started having this to make any sense of it.

But for the meantime, Worldometer shows Brazil as being better off than the world average. (Sorted by far LH colum = deaths/million)

Not saying that's the full story, however.

By official counts, the country had its worst day yet on Thursday with about 3,700 new cases and more than 400 deaths, and Friday was nearly as grim.

... "We are looking at a photo of the past," Mr Alves said in an interview last week. "The number of cases in Brazil is, therefore, probably even greater than what we are predicting."

... Mr Bolsonaro has continued to dismiss health officials' dire predictions about the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Last week, the president fired a health minister who had supported tough anti-virus measures and replaced him with an advocate for reopening the economy.

Mr Bolsonaro's stance largely echoes that of his counterpart and ally US President Donald Trump   https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-25/coronavirus-brazil-health-system-close-to-collapse-covid19/12184912

The threat of coronavirus in Brazil could wipe out the remaining indigenous tribes in the South American country, one of the nation's prominent photographers has warned.

Its what they do.

Its what the Israelis are copying - and we're enabling.

I'm going to try an experiment Berry.

It will take up an annoying amount of my time, but I am going to create a thread devoted purely to your attempts to hijack and move any posts there.

I think, after just one week, it will be interesting to observe it all in one place, and find out just how often you do this.

It may only feel like all the time.
