It lists a lot of reasonable arguments, but doesn't support any evidence that pernambuco is not endangered nor that the reason therefore is not widespread illegal harvesting or trade. In opposite I think that both the American and German papers are trying to take the Brazilian concerns very serious and are searching for a compromise. Don't know if claims about hidden agendas can be really helpfull in this context. These might be inner-Brazilian arguments and to get part of them won't help much the interests of musicians, makers and dealers IMO. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
