Brazil: Slash, burn and kill capitalism

I know President Lula has hands full but the slash, burn and kill "cowboy" capitalists need some sort of lesson from the President to change their ways of have their holdings nationalized. Endangering people and the planet is no longer an option folks!

Second Guarani village burned in Mato Grosso do Sul

On the morning of Sept. 18, the Guarani community of Apyka’y was violently attacked by a group of ten armed men.

The attackers are believed to be security guards, hired by the ranchers that occupy the Guarani’s land. According to Survival International, “the Guarani-Kaiow√° of Apyka’y have tried several times to return to their tekoha or ancestral land, which they were forced to leave a decade ago when it was occupied by ranchers. After the Indians’ latest attempt to reoccupy their land, the rancher got an eviction order from the courts, and the community was evicted in April 2009.”
