Jubilant Indians thank Survival supporters

An Indian organisation in northern Brazil has sent a message of thanks to Survival supporters after winning back their land, known as Raposa-Serra do Sol. In a message entitled 'A brighter future shines', the Indigenous Council of Roraima said, 'We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We thank all of you who spent hours and days working on campaigns, writing letters, sending e-mails…

'For our elders, the sense of liberty is stretching across to the mountains on the horizon… We are preparing a huge celebration in the coming months. Meanwhile, our deepest thanks.'
