Brazil to save and protect Awa tribe

Good news for a tribe in Brazil, as the government has decided to protect them by evicting people that have abusively and illegally occupied their territories damaging not only the territory ( destroying 30% of their territory!) but also the Awa tribe ( that has only about 450 people).

According to positivenews.org, this decision has been taken due to international pressure and thanks to a campaign called Survival International which spread awareness around the globe and included support from Colin Firth and Vivienne Westwood.
