18 Sep 2014 Cattle ranching company Yaguarete Pora S.A. is illegally clearing the last remaining island of forest that is home to uncontacted Ayoreo Indians in Paraguay.
The area has the fastest rate of deforestation in the world. Without their forest, the Ayoreo cannot survive.
Please write to Paraguay’s Environment Ministry and pledge not to eat Paraguayan beef until Yaguarete’s illegal destruction of the Ayoreo’s land is stopped. Copy and paste one or both of the following e-mail addresses to send the pre-written message below to Minister Cristina Morales: email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org
------------------------------------------------- Dear Minister Cristina Morales, Cattle ranching company Yaguarete Pora S.A. is stealing the Ayoreo’s land and resources, and destroying their last refuge in the forest. The Ayoreo face catastrophe if their land is not protected. I will not eat Paraguayan beef, and will encourage others not to, until your government stops Yaguarete Pora from destroying the Ayoreo’s forest and upholds the Indians’ right to their ancestral land.
