World to Dilma: Save the Amazon

Posted: 16 June 2011
The Amazon is in serious danger. The lower house of the Brazilian congress has approved a gutting of Brazil’s forest protection laws. Unless we act now vast tracts of our planet’s lungs could beopened up to clear cutting devastation

The move has sparked widespread anger and protests across the country. And tension is rising -- in the last few weeks several prominent environmental advocates have been murdered, purportedly by armed thugs hired by illegal loggers. The timing is critical, they’re trying to silence criticism just as the law is discussed in the Senate. But President Dilma can veto the changes, if we can persuade her to overcome political pressure and step onto the global stage as a leader. 

79% of Brazilians support Dilma's veto of the forest law changes, but

their voices are being challenged by logger lobbies. It’s nowup to all of us to raise the stakes and make Amazon protection a global issue. Let’s come together now in a giant call to stop the murders and illegal logging, and save the AmazonSign the petition below -- it’ll be delivered to Dilma when we reach 1,000,000
