Survival International reports that Colin Firth is campaigning to save ‘Earth’s most threatened tribe’

 

 
 

I received this press release email: "Oscar-winning film star Colin Firth today launched a major Survival International campaign to save ‘Earth’s most threatened tribe’ – the Awá of the Brazilian Amazon.

The centerpiece of the campaign is a short film, featuring an appeal by Colin Firth and music by Grammy-winning composer Heitor Pereira.

The Awá are a small tribe whose territory has been invaded by a vast army of illegal loggers, ranchers and settlers. Astonishing graphics on the campaign website show the devastating destruction of the Indians’ forest – which is happening faster than any other Amazon tribe.

The situation is now so critical that several Brazilian experts have spoken of a ‘genocide’ and ‘extinction’."
