Mawaji Suruwaha, talking about Haikani’s brother who was buried alive.

“Forgive me, the Declaration of Human RIghts does not apply to the Indians. The Constitution does not apply to the Indians.”

Congressman Francisco Praciano

These quotes come from Hakani, a documentary on Infantacide by David Cunningham. I won’t write much here, but please check out the site to see how you can be involve and hear what is going on with the child injustice in Brazil. If you have a facebook account you can see more and join the Hakani group here. They will be streaming the movie on line on Friday at noon as Friday the Brazilian government will vote to see if tribesmen and women in Brazil will be seen as citizens or not.

It will be worth your time to check it out. Thanks from Costa Rica, Phil

    Thanks so much for posting about this issue. I’ve posted about it on my blog too. I think it’s so important that we get the word out. If we each do something: tell a friend, join the facebook group, write letters to the US Embassy in Brazil and the Brazilian Embassy in the US…we can make a change. We can be a voice for the voiceless and help children like Hakani.
