Peru offers concession to Indians in land dispute

World Bank revokes loan to Brazilian cattle giant accused of Amazon deforestation

Wal-Mart bans beef illegally produced in the Amazon rainforest

We send thanks and a deep bow of gratitude to everyone who has been spreading the word and taking action.
