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

Over the last two months, we have witnessed an alarming assault on the Amazon and its people.

The government approved construction of the disastrous Belo Monte Dam, allowing heavy machinery to break ground on the banks of the Xingu River.
Brazil’s Congress voted to gut their Forest Code, leading to a huge spike in deforestation and leading forest guardians have been victims of murder and intimidation."
