OUR 2 CAMPAIGNS :
Brazilian government wants to pass a new law to open up the heart of Amazon to devastating industrial corporations projects, and legalize the expulsion of indigenous from their ancestral lands. The Brazilian Government pushing draft bill 490 that will basically legalize genocide — it will be voted on the congress on 08/25/2021. But there is hope, if the people from all over the world are against the genocide of indigenous people, and destruction of Amazonia Forest, our pressure could tip the balance
Take responsibility, this fight is also yours
Let us know if you want to go with us march in Brazil with 5.000 indigenous on 08/25/2021, they are in the front line of this fight and we want to be with them.
We created an international artist solidarity with indigenous in Brazil and we work together with some friends /comrades and you could be with us
Think about it…. and act
