New Print: FORA GARIMPO!
This print is to raise awareness about the humanitarian catastrophe that the Yanomami indigenous people are suffering, largely due to the disastrous effect of illegal gold mining that has displaced them, brought diseases, child malnutrition, destroyed the land and contaminated the rivers with mercury and poisoning the Yanomami people. Mercury is used for gold mining to extract gold, over 90% of the Yanomami people have higher levels of mercury than the World Health Organization recommends.
