Defend the Brazilian Amazon

Post by aspen on Sun Aug 21, 2011 9:11 pm

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.
