Brazil Worried International NGO’s Want to Take Over the Amazon

    The 10th National Conference of State Legislatures, which began in Brazil Wednesday, May 17, and runs through Friday, May 19, will debate denunciations that the Amazon is being internationalized.

    State deputies from various regions in Brazil and experts on the Amazon are gathered in Manaus, in the state of Amazonas, for the event, which is sponsored by the National Union of State Legislatures (UNALE).

    At the end of the encounter, the participants intend to draft the Letter from Manaus, which will be delivered to the candidates in this year’s presidential race.

    During the conference the military commander of the Amazon region, general Cláudio Barbosa Figueiredo, will give a talk entitled "Amazônia – Patrimony of Brazil," in which he will warn of the foreign intervention risks the country faces.

    According to UNALE president, José Távora, the choice of Manaus to host the conference was a strategic one for raising the issue of the risk of the region’s internationalization.

    "Among the wealth of topics of vital interest to state legislatures, we want to discuss the national security of one of the states with the greatest resource endowments in the country and question the purpose of the presence of 3,600 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the region," he affirmed.

      Listen, this is so much bullshit that its not even funny. The international community is well aware, and recognizes the amazon belongs to brazil, and has no intentions whatsoever of partaking in any activity in the amazon without the blessing of the brazilian government.

      It’s just a shame that left to their own devices, the corrupt political machine in brazil will see that the amazon gets wiped out in the next 50-100 years….and the world will suffer for their corruption/ignorance.
