I was a UNAIS agricultural volunteer from 1966-68 based in Belem working for the NGO Catholic Relief Services. It was a long time ago but I visited many of the places you mention and a lot more. At that time the population of Brasil was 90 million. It has doubled since then. The Amazon forest was much more intact. Mauaus had just become a tax free zone and was beginning to be opened up. The trans Amazonica highway did not exist. The road from Belem to Brasilia was mostly a dirt track. I flew into Maraba and Altamira.I was impressed by the need to do somethinmg for the Kayapo people. What are you suggesting other than the usual routes of donations, fairtrade, letters to embassy etc??I would love to meet Bruce and discuss at first hand many of the issues and the rest that were not raised on the programmes. Any chance of you coming to Bristol? Its also good to see Brasilians living in this country writing in to the blogg.

He lived by and amongst them, he learned their language. He had great admiration for their bravery, self sufficience and way of living. The programme gave me a unique opportunity to share what I learned from my father with my daughters here in the UK. It was a well researched and revealing programme - thank you BBC and the team for such an excellent project.As for the future of the Amazon and its people, I am not sure if and how we can help. Greed, ignorance and lack of awareness may very well win the day. All we can do is to continue raising awareness and help Brazil to improve social structure, education and opportunity for its people. By the way, what is Bruce's new Kaiapo name ? Not worth revealing ?

Your recent blog suggested we 'vote with our wallets' I'm very happy to do this - but what do you mean? buy Fairtrade? give up meat? what? Tue 21 Oct 2008 12:20:53 GMT+1
