Colin Firth launches campaign for ‘Earth’s most threatened tribe’.

‘One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil’s Minister of Justice. But it’s just not his priority. Let’s push it up his list.’ — Colin Firth

Oscar-winning film star Colin Firth today launched a major Survival International campaign to save ‘Earth’s most threatened tribe’ – the Awá of the Brazilian Amazon.

The centerpiece of the campaign is a short film, featuring an appeal by Colin Firth and music by Grammy-winning composer Heitor Pereira.

The Awá are a small tribe whose territory has been invaded by a vast army of illegal loggers, ranchers and settlers. Astonishing graphics on the campaign website show the devastating destruction of the Indians’ forest – which is happening faster than any other Amazon tribe.

    Unfortunately it happens all over the world. It’s not the tragedy of this small tribe but of our world as a whole. The trouble is that very many people have chosen wrong priorities in their lives. We’ve stopped being understanding, sympathizing, admiring wild life, beauties of Nature around us.
    I think we are to save our young generation who are “swallowed” by the internet and stop reading good books and seeing good films, who every day watch TV and movies full of violence, blood, shooting.
    All what happens nowadays follows from poverty and shallowness of our souls
