Brazil: Incomplete Justice for Murders of Amazon Activists

Peasants  and human rights  defenders in Brazil are indignant over the acquittal  of the man accused  of ordering the May 2011 murders of two prominent  Amazon activists, José  Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva and his wife Maria do  Espírito Santo. When the sentences were read out, activists and  rural workers burned crosses and threw stones at the courthouse  windows.
