Dear Minister Cardozo,
I urge you to ensure that the eviction of the loggers and ranchers from Awá land starts in the next couple of weeks, before the rains set in making the operation almost impossible.
The Awá will lose everything if you do not take fast action to ensure their survival. They depend completely on their forest, which is being destroyed at an alarming pace.
You promised to evict the invaders from the Awá's land, and a court ordered this to be done by early 2013, but little concrete action has been taken and the Awá are warning that they are unable to feed their families.
Only you have the power to save the Awá and there is no time to spare: if you do not act now, earth's most threatened tribe will be driven to extinction.
