[Action]International Day of Action to defend the Brazilian Amazon

International Day of Action
to Defend the Brazilian Amazon
August 22, 2011

Scroll down to see a list of planned international actions.

Over the last two months, Brazilians have witnessed an alarming assault on the Amazon and the people who live there.

  • The government approved construction of the disastrous Belo Monte Dam, allowing heavy machinery to break ground on the banks of the Xingu River.
  • The Brazilian Congress is on the verge of approving a major rollback of the Brazilian Forestry Code, already causing a huge spike in deforestation.
  • Leading forest guardians have been victims of murder and intimidation.

This is one of the defining environmental struggles of our times; the assault on the Amazon must stop! We, the international community, need to stand in solidarity with the growing numbers of Brazilians calling for environmental sanity and respect for human rights in the Amazon. Together, we can make a difference.

You can help protect the Amazon!

Brazilians are increasingly organizing protests throughout the country. Saturday August 20 will be massive day of action in at least 22 Brazilian cities. Antonia Melo, a key leader of the movement to stop the Belo Monte Dam, has asked people to organize protests around the world on Monday August 22 in front of their local Brazilian Embassy or Consulate.

Take action!
