Despite the fact that the Amazon rainforest provides 20% of the Oxygen we breathe, local farmers have been clearing large areas of the Amazon and burning them, in order to provide grazing land for cattle. The President of Finland has already announced that he will discuss banning Amazonian beef imports with other EU leaders. We must show those leaders that we want to protect our own survival, and that we’re willing to vote accordingly. 

The Amazon belongs to all of us. We all need that Oxygen in order to breathe. We all need the carbon sink the Amazon provides in order to avoid a runaway greenhouse effect that would leave Earth uninhabitable. It’s time to choose peoples’ lives over the short term profits of these Brazilian beef farmers. This affects all of us. Show world leaders that we will fight for our survival.
