Rain Forest Politics
Program #COCA007. Recorded in Boulder, CO on December 07, 1989.
The Amazon Rain Forest, a wonder of the world, is under attack. The lungs of the Earth are being destroyed by greedy capitalists. Cockburn connects racist attitudes toward the indigenous in Brazil to the white ruling class. He says, when you look at the Amazon, “the word you really have to use is justice. Justice toward nature, justice toward people. That’s the way the forest has to be seen and saved.” He talks about the radical organizing work in the Amazon of Chico Mendes, who was murdered. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
