3,000 Riot to Protest Crackdown on Illegal Amazon Logging

You know you've had your head stuck inside a computer for too long when, after reading the headline above, you start wondering why:

1. How long had been keeping these logs?
2. In which country is excessive logging of customer data illegal?
3. How much did Jeff Bezos have to pay these protesters to incite a riot?

But it turns out of course that it's a rainforest article. (Insert "couldn't see the forest for the trees" pun here.)
