The Children of the Worani by Razikimzungu The Children of the Worani by Razikimzungu
These children, the children of the Worani, are the ones who will inherit the loss of their home as the oil wars of the world move to south america. They asked me to tell their story; They have a home. Their home is in the lungs of the world. They live in the forest and the forest is what they take care of. Their land is untainted by the world and it is their only pride. Their government is taking their land as you read this. Their government found oil underneath their land. Their government is tearing up their home, because you and I want their oil. We cannot replace their home, or the land they have cared for for generations. These are the children of the Worani.

Oh, fooey. The only form that globalism has ever taken and will ever take is imperialism. People in power have more influence over this trend than anyone else, which isn't to say that the 99% shouldn't be conscientious about their actions within their own spheres.

wow, that is just sad- It just proves that our dependence on oil has gotten to the point that people are removing what others claim as home :( This will make me think about how I should manage the way I consume oil

Shared this on FB. Hopefully it gets shared in turn and awareness is raised. There is nothing worse than losing your home to greed. Thank you for caring enough to speak for these children.
