Amazon’s ’guardian’ killed by illegal loggers in Brazil

An attack on an indigenous warrior famous for defending the Amazon rain-forest proved to be fatal, with the warrior of the Guajajara tribe succumbing to a bullet wound in the head. Illegal loggers in Brazil had set up a trap for Paul Paulino Guajajara (Lobo) while he was hunting on the Arariboia reservation.

This is another tragedy in an already tragic situation. Sadly I fear his death will likely be the first in a long series. And what is at stake is not just their homeland, but the health and welfare of our planet. Meanwhile the climate change deniers cheer Trump for actively backing out of the Paris agreements. Another day in the march towards our own extinction.

The photo of Lobo shows him wearing modern clothing with a handgun tucked into the waist of his shorts. Looks like these are not poor little jungle people ignorant of modern ways.

I want to know how you get away with illegal logging. I mean, it's not the most inconspicuous of jobs, chopping down a bunch of trees with machinery and then transporting the logs on massive trucks.
