Bolivia's government is in turmoil over a mega-highway that would slice through the Amazon, fueling destruction of the rainforest. Following brutal repression of indigenous protesters, the President has been forced to halt construction and reexamine his position. Let's stand with the brave indigenous communities to stop the crackdown and protect the Amazon -- sign the petition and forward to everyone.

      Boliviail! Please be wiser! Don't allow this destructive highway, it will cause far more harm than good. You have treasures in your country, they are natural treasures! If you use them wisely and conserve them without such harm as this highway they will repay you in the future. Preserve your natural species diversity, your forests and your water! You can be a leader for the world on how to steward these incredible resources that you have. Don't go forward with this project, find another way to achieve your economic goals that doesn't include this massive destruction. This plan if carried out, will be be disasterous today and will continue to cause harm for decades. You will be leaving a legacy of harm. You have a choice. Please leave a good legacy, please protect your people and tomorrow's children.

      Without the plants in the Amazon cleaning the planet's crappy air, we, as people and animals, have less quality air.
