Save the Amazon: Veto the New Forest Code Before It's Too Late

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

Our planet's largest remaining rainforest is under threat from changes to the laws that govern forest protection in Brazil.

The new Forest Code bill has been passed. It severely weakens protections for the Amazon rainforest and opens up vast areas to destruction, which would contribute to accelerating climate change.

But there is still time. Brazilian President Dilma has 15 days to veto the new Forest Code bill and save the Amazon rainforest from destruction. Please send her a message now before it's too late!

      All life is connected, if you destroy the rainforest you will be destroying a huge part of life on Earth.

      This just feels like a huge step backwards in battle against deforestation.
