When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

The President in response to the Alliance For Change plan to ban log exports if they win the elections, “if they come to government they will ban the export of timber, well the only way you can do that without affecting the livelihoods of small timber (logs) workers generally is to be able to add value to our timber products…It’s a total lie…the propaganda that we are destroying our forest. I don’t know if they want us to eat the wood [logs] if we don’t export them, what we will do eat them?” - Guyana President & ass, Donald Ramotar. August 30, 2014 addressing gold miners in Bartica. Gold miners are responsible for poisoning hundreds of rivers and waterways in Guyana and also destroying wildlife and trees
You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers.
So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin.
Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.
If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
