Greenpeace calls for demarcation of all Indian lands in the Brazilian Amazon

The Deni Indian community with help from UK volunteers today began to physically cut a border in the Amazon rainforest to demarcate their lands in a bid to protect their traditional territory from industrial exploitation. Without this demarcation the Deni lands would be vulnerable to land grabs by logging companies after the wealth of natural resources which belong to the Deni. This is only the second time that an Indian group has, without government assistance, demarcated their lands in the Amazon.
