  1. I am afraid LULA is lying. Nobody in Brasil in his govern really knows about the environment. The only politician that was involved with the rainforest now is gone.
    The three of them in the photo know nothing about the rain forest. Actually, they donot care it is all propaganda for the next year to have the woman who came from the same country side LULA born to be the new president. We brazilian shall mourn .
    GOD BLESS US and protects the environment because those guys will not .

  2. ^ Interesting comments and thanks for posting.

    Marina Silva is awesome and I have a ton of respect for her. I hope she runs for President.
