Amazon Watch Statement on Forest Fires in the Brazilian Amazon
"The unprecedented fires ravaging the Amazon are an international tragedy and a dangerous contribution to climate chaos. This devastation is directly related to President Bolsonaro's anti-environmental rhetoric, which erroneously frames forest protections and human rights as impediments to Brazil's economic growth.
Farmers and ranchers understand the president's message as a license to commit arson with wanton impunity, in order to aggressively expand their operations into the rainforest." Read more here.
Global News: "...cattle farmers start fires deliberately to clear forest to make way for ranching, and it’s not always legal.” Animal agriculture is A LEADING cause of the climate crisis. Go vegan now to help save the planet:www.challenge22.com

This is funded by us. This is Dairy."
