US missionary murdered in Brazil

Sr. Stang had a long history supporting poor people at Amazonia, in social and ecological projects - which intended to teach people produce without destroying forest. She was known internationally for her actions and ideas defending nature but she made many enemies with powerful landlords who are taking huge economic advantage from wood extration, sometimes invading state-owned lands to smuggle wood.
