Altino Machado reports a radio call [1] [PT] from José Meirelles, who coordinates an Etno-Environmental Protection Front at the Brazil-Peru border on Acre state, deep in the Amazon Forest. He tells about gunshots that fortunately missed 2 workers on a canoe yesterday, in an event that can be linked with the illegal logging dennounced by Ashaninka bloggers [2]. “We call for the diligence of prevention, and not for the rescue of bodies“, Meireles said.
