Firth video generates protest e-mails

Colin Firth Campaign for Brazilian Tribe Breaks RecordsColin Firth's appeal has generated more than 10,000 protest emails.

A campaign launched by Colin Firth to save the world’s most threatened tribe has generated more than 10,000 protest emails to the Brazilian government in just three days–a record for protest action for tribal peoples anywhere in the world.

The Survival International campaign aims to save the Aw√° tribe, whose lands are being illegally invaded and destroyed.

In a video appeal, Colin Firth asks viewers to send a protest message to Brazil’s Justice Minister, who has the power to send in federal police to evict the loggers, ranchers and settlers who are ravaging the tribe’s land.
