                    The importance of our
                      country’s economy
                   cannot be denied. There
                  is an absolute need for us
                   to do all we can to boost
                      the economy of our
                             nation.

                     I seriously do not see
                     anything wrong with
                  clearing the Amazon forest
                  to plant soybeans. All I am
                    seeing are the economic
                  benefits that can be reaped.
                     What harm is there?!

                  Living in the Amazon forest
                     is our way of life. The
                   Amazon forest is home to
                     our ancestors and our
                    children… It is our life,
                    what are we going to do
                         when it is gone?

                  Cattle ranching is good, at least
                   we get milk and beef. It’s better
                   than having those useless trees
                  that are totally not of help to our
                         country’s economy.
