Review over deforesteration of the Amazon Rainforest

Environmentalist Environmentalist are people that work together to slow down the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. They want to create reserves of the rainforest land and to develop the Amazon more carefully when necessary.
Government leaders The government began encouraging development of the rainforest in the 1960s. Government leaders are in charge of building roads, dams, and airstrips. They want to continue developing the rainforest, but also balance the needs of all groups.
Native Amazonians Native Amazonians have lived in the Brazilian rainforest for thousands of years. They want to defend their traditional land against rubber tappers, ranchers, and settlers. They want the government to set aside land reserves for them.
Ranchers Ranchers want to defend the large portions of land they own and use it for raising cattle against other groups who claim the land. These groups include rubber tappers, native Amazonians, Settlers and Environmentalist.
Rubber Tappers Rubber tappers have made a life in the rainforest for many generations by taking rubber from wild rubber trees. They have defended their land claims against settlers and especially ranchers. They want the government to set aside land reserves.
Settlers Settlers are formerly landless people who came to the rainforest starting in the 1960s. These people came to claim small plots of land for farming. They want to defend there land against native Amazonians, rubber tappers, and ranchers who also claim it.
