Global actions will take place with marches and protests to Brazilian Embassies, fast food restaurants, chalking in public spaces, meditation circles and candle-light vigils. If you’d like to join in, look for your local Climate Save group or if you don’t have one, contact us about joining.

Washington Post: How beef demand is accelerating the Amazon’s deforestation and climate peril
Brazil’s cattle ranchers are clear-cutting and burning the rainforest amid a surge in beef exports.

Greenpeace has joined the fight against the destruction of the Amazon by giant animal agriculture companies. “Fast food companies like KFC, McDonald’s and Burger King sourcing from Brazil cannot stand by as the Amazon is being torched, while they still use beef and soya from the country. These forests are typically cleared to produce meat and crops, which is fuelling the climate emergency. Fast food companies must reject such products linked to recent and ongoing Amazon destruction. They should publicly speak out against Bolsonaro’s attacks on forests and Indigenous Peoples’ rights.”
