We want the land

Rubber Tappers

The land is ours and this is why

Rubber tapping has been a traditional way of life for many people living in the Amazon forest since the start of the century. It is not damaging to the forest as it does not require the tree to be cut down in order for the latex to be extracted. As many as 63,000 families now earn their living from rubber tapping in extractive reserves in the Amazon forest.
