Allot of things are happening in the Amazon when it comes to logging… on the other hand when it comes to blogging… well that is a totally different matter, as I am moving from one river to another and talking to monkeys seems to be the best way to get a message around.
Many companies are trying to get wood, and carbon points, in a legal way from the native communities. The new approach is that “all” sides would win, but do they?

The case there is quite complexed. Going there in a few weeks, but only as a friend.

In the meantime, today, the newspaper La Region publish an article about another contract being signed with another native community.

Interesting to look deeper into it. I might. No promises, as I want to get away from civilisation again ASAP.
