What is the status of Darly Alves da Silva and others??
"...but Darcy was recaptured and as of 2004, was still in the jungle." So was he recaptured or wasn't he?///Replier: He was not recaptured, but they found out he was in the jungle, they just didn't know where in the jungle, that is why they were investigating.

The Theory that Ranchers WEREN'T Responsible for his Murder
I am somewhat familiar with the history of Chico Mendes and was surprised to see this hypothesis. The Citation included http://www.sln.org.uk/geography/Documents/Thinking/Suspects%20(Chico%20Mendez).doc is a word document of a school project. The website hosting it can't be accessed, but redirects to a local educational site. I don't think this meets criteria for notable sources. Voila-pourquoi (talk) 19:30, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Wasn't he dead?
"When the first meeting of this new union, the National Council of Rubber Tappers, was held in 2001..." How did he educate the people in 2001 if he was murdered in 1988? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:58, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
Continued Vandalism of this page
I'm concerned by the periodic vandalism, which seems to often include references to schools, names and places in Wales/England. I'm especially concerned about the 2 edits I just reverted --http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chico_Mendes&oldid=320776278 and http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chico_Mendes&oldid=320776100-- since these had escaped notice among a flurry of other similar edits, and so persisted on the page for 3 days although other damage had been repaired. Does anyone have any ideas what we can do to address this ongoing problem? Voila-pourquoi (talk) 06:17, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
Documentaries "Children of the Amazon" and "Voice of the Amazon"
Concerning this Edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Chico_Mendes&diff=408676761&oldid=408364243
The information about "Children of the Amazon" is sourced to a New York Times article. There is no reliable source provided for the information on "Voice of the Amazon" other than an external link to that filmmaker's own website. I'm inclined to leave the new material in place in the hope that the editor AbigailBWright or someone else can substantiate, but I think that the "corrected misinformation," being likewise unsourced, should be reverted. Any input? Voila-pourquoi (talk) 00:55, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Restoring uncited material
I noticed that two substantial paragraphs were deleted less than a month after citation needed tags were placed on them.
Reading these paragraphs and comparing to Andrew Revkin's book "The Burning Season," it seems that most of the information in them is accurate as well as important to the overall story, so I feel their deletion was premature. Making the effort to find citations and perhaps revise the content based on those sources seems a more fruitful path than deleting them outright.

French vs English page on Chico Mendes
After reading both the french and english version on Chico Mendes, I notice significant discrepancies. Which one is true ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SpinnerG (talk • contribs) 16:40, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Music and Lyrics references
There are a few more references to Chico Mendes than those made by Maná and Paul McCartney. Living Colour refers to Chico Mendes in their "Sacred Ground" song. Mloskot (talk) 13:45, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
