Thank you for agreeing to host an action on the Global Day of Action for the Amazon!

Unprecedented fires are ravaging the Amazon - more than 74,000 fires this year is an 84% increase over last year’s count. This is an international tragedy and a dangerous contribution to climate chaos

It is critical that before the G7 Summit, the United National General Assembly meeting and Climate Week, this issue be put on the forefront and that international pressure is brought to force Brazil to address the urgent need to suppress the fires, protect the Amazon and respect the rights of indigenous peoples and their territory.

On September 5th we encourage everyone to take to the streets and demonstrate.

Focus should not only be directed at Brazilian embassies or consulates, but also at the offices of the corporations profiting from Amazon destruction.
