Syria, Jordan and Brazil

Nigel Wilson meets four young Syrians in Amman: wounded former rebels, they now while away the hours with gallows humour and cyber-romance. But all their quickfire repartee can't mask their fears for the future of their homeland. Sue Branford goes up the Amazon and learns why the Munduruku and other indigenous groups are resisting plans for goldmines and hydropower dams in their territory - and witnesses a "public" consultation where their voices go unheard.
