A thank you to all my friends on WordPress. Keep writing, let the world know we are only a village in this great big expanse of the Universe.
We are thrilled to present the second in our series of online events to celebrate 15 years of protecting the Amazon and supporting indigenous rights.
Next MONDAY, OCTOBER 8th, on Indigenous Peoples Day you are invited to a one-day online screening of the film Children of the Jaguar, winner of “Best Documentary” at the 2012 National Geographic All Roads Film Festival. This is a groundbreaking documentary about the Kichwa indigenous people of Sarayaku, Ecuador and their successful international legal battle to prevent oil exploration on their land without their consent. The film will be available to watch at causes.com/amazonwatchlive throughout the day on October 8th.
Then join us a week later at Noon PDT on MONDAY, OCTOBER 15th as leaders from Sarayaku will join us for the Amazon Watch Annual Fundraising Luncheon. We will live stream this event and offer a chance to interact with Amazon Watch staff and our special guests from Ecuador, Tupak Amaru Viteri Gualinga, community Vice President, and celebrated Sarayaku leader, Marlon Santi.
Oh, and in case you missed Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Debi Nova’s performance at our first online event last weekend, you can watch an encore presentation here.
Synagogueinte Naatil (In The Land Of Synagogue) – 2011 is film based on historical facts. This film is in Malayalam with English sub-titles. The translation is wanting. I wish to thank Mr.Thaha Ibrahin for granting permission to upload this video. Thaha is a very special person who has lived and worked among the Jews of Jew Town Mattencherry, Kerala, India.
My dear friend Mrs. Sarah Jacob Cohen features in it. Please watch it and share this film. It is a fragment of history of the Jews in India.
For being involved in the making of bombs that killed over 200 innocent people, for being involved in the bombing of a church that killed 19 Christians you give an INDONESIAN MUSLIM TERRORIST 20 years so that he can sit in prison and plan more bombings.
And you give the death penalty to people, innocent or not, for carrying drugs.
I wonder if the bomb was placed in Java and it killed hundreds of Muslims? Would Umar Patek get 20 years or death?
It is evident from this ruling that the FPI now has the Indonesian Judiciary in its control. The lives of innocent tourists and Indonesian Christians are cheaper than drug offences.
This is shameful and a sad day for true justice in Indonesia.
