Brazil's President to decide fate of Amazon Forest Protection laws any day now

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

A new Forest Code bill is being proposed that severely weakens protections for the Amazon rainforest and opens up vast areas to destruction. The bill has already passed t through the Brazilian Senate and it is now up to the Brazilian President Dilma to decide whether it becomes law. 

Brazilian President Dilma cares about Brazil’s global reputation and wants to be a global leader.

Let her know that the world is watching and urge her to veto the new Forest Code bill!

Right now Brazilian President Dilma can save the Amazon rainforest from destruction by vetoing this new Forest Code bill. You can send her a message now.

      The protection of the Amazon rainforest is important not only to the people of Brazil but people around the world. If the decision is left to one person, I can only hope she'll make the decision to protect rather than endanger.

      Humankind must practice self-control. Self-destruction is the highest form of idiocy. If we can turn our focas from the trivial, and mindless destruction of our only life support system....we may have a chance. Nature has the power, and has never been seperate from humankind. If we keep pretending it is, we are out of luck.
