Since taking power, Brazil's right-wing government has allowed the intentional burning of the Amazon to clear land for cattle grazing. Before the recent fires, Brazil was deforesting the Amazon at a rate of one soccer field per minute. Fires in the Amazon have increased 84% this year.
The Amazon produces 20% of the world's oxygen. It's an enormous carbon sink. It's the home of a million indigenous people. We must defend it.
Join us and a coalition of climate justice activists to protest outside the Brazilian Consulate.
