La única Cena con la carne de Dios
It is a novel work that explores various stimuli by merging science, politics, ecology, humanism, spirit and consciousness to seek the sensitization of the reader in transcendental issues that profoundly affect contemporary society and proposes the necessary and unavoidable lucidity about the values of a unique planetary treasure -the Amazon-. The structure of the historical novel is developed in three frames that, crossed in the warp, converge to the fundamental objective of Professor Alvaro J, central character of the work, of forging with his students of the University an elite of new political leaders who assume the Reins of power in the short term in the Amazonian countries, with the sole objective of replacing obsolete development models. Unfair, chaotic, devastating and corrupt; generators of a decadent society, neurotic and subjugated to interests antagonistic to the rights and needs of its inhabitants. Through dialogues, conferences and an adventure story about the flight of six rubber men and a woman, the Prof forges the story from different events, scenarios and scientific data of the process of occupation of the Amazon region. Injustices and humiliations against indigenous communities and rubber tappers; the tricks of the British Empire to support English researchers in the adventures of biopiracy with the seeds of quina and rubber; the murdered Chico Mendes and his fight for Extractive Reserve in Brazil; José Eustasio Rivera, La Vorágine, the genocide of the Huitotos and the Casa Arana in Putumayo; Placido de Castro, the Acrean revolution and other emblematic historical events such as the current criminal contamination with mercury of the Bolivian, Peruvian, Ecuadorian, Colombian, Brazilian and Venezuelan Amazon rivers. It shows the real complexity of the Amazon and the danger of destroying it due to the devastation caused by loggers, agricultural and livestock projects, annihilation of its rivers, urban growth without planning and other environmental attacks coupled with planetary climate change.
