Illegal mining on the Atabapo River, Amazonas, Venezuela

The region where three major rivers – Orinoco, Atabapo & Guaviare Rivers – come together in Amazonas State in Venezuela is controlled by the FARC with the blessing and collusion of the Bolivarian National Guard/@GNBoficial, the Bolivarian Armed Forces/#FANB and of course, Nicolas Maduro. They are pilfering Venezuela’s natural resources, destroying the environment & abusing our indigenous peoples, including the Yanomami.
