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.

What would you be willing to do to protect your home? Indigenous protesters in Brazil invaded a government office to take a stand against the policies of far-right President Bolsonaro.

Amazon Watch Statement on Forest Fires in the Brazilian Amazon
“The unprecedented fires ravaging the Amazon are an international tragedy and a dangerous contribution to climate chaos. This devastation is directly related to President Bolsonaro’s anti-environmental rhetoric, which erroneously frames forest protections and human rights as impediments to Brazil’s economic growth.

Farmers and ranchers understand the president’s message as a license to commit arson with wanton impunity, in order to aggressively expand their operations into the rainforest.” Read more here.

Vice.com: Feeling Sad About the Amazon Fires? Stop Eating Meat – The growing demand for meat around the world is directly linked to the Amazon fires.

The GuardianRevealed: rampant deforestation of Amazon driven by global greed for meat

Global News: “…cattle farmers start fires deliberately to clear forest to make way for ranching, and it’s not always legal.” Animal agriculture is A LEADING cause of the climate crisis. Go vegan now to help save the planet: www.challenge22.com
