                                 LINK CHANGE/AFP/ More Details

     Para state is bigger than the USA's California...AND Texas...combined.
    It contains Amazon rainforest, cattle ranches and mines.
    And...a referendum Sunday will determine if it splits into 3 separate states.
    At least 60% of voters are against a split.
    But the referendum is indicative of a growing clamor for more power from remote but fast-growing electorates.
