Date : 29th January 2009, Source : ENS



BELEM, Brazil, January 29, 2009 (ENS) - Indigenous people from across Latin America led more than 1,000 World Social Forum participants to form a human banner Tuesday, using their bodies to dramatize the increasingly precarious situation of the Amazon rainforest, recognized as a key to climate stability. Around the silhouette of a warrior taking aim with a bow and arrow, indigenous leaders, environmentalists and activists spelled out the message "SALVE A AMAZONIA," which means Save the Amazon in Portuguese.
