Published by Oxfam
Based on Oxfam's 20 years of development experience in Brazil, A Mask Called Progress examines the conflicts that have brought many traditional communities to the edge of extinction, and threaten to destroy one of the richest natural environments on earth. In their own words, the people of the Brazilian rainforest — rubber-tappers and indigenous people — describe their fight to defend their lands and their cultures against the ravages of rubber barons and cattle ranchers.
