STOP deforestation and exploitation of the Amazon!

Jair Bolsonaro, president of Brazil, defended the exploitation of the Amazon for profit in an interview during his election campaign in Porto Velho, Rondônia. The Amazon must be preserved. Deforestation is leading to a worldwide collapse and the extinction of both flora and fauna. Sign this petition to save this ecologically important region and protect Article 225 of Brazil's Federal Constitution: "Everyone has the right to an ecologically balanced environment, which is a public good for the people's use and is essential for a healthy life. The Government and the community have a duty to defend and to preserve the environment for present and future generations.” The Amazon is known as the "lungs of the world," because it is the world's main source of vegetation. It also contains the largest biodiversity of any tropical forest. This region is home to about 2.5 million insect species, tens of thousands of plants and about 2,000 birds and mammals. In Brazil alone there is an estimated 96,000 to 128,000 invertebrate species. One square kilometer of the Amazon rainforest contains about 90,000 metric tons of live plants. In addition to the threat to this biodiversity, the carbon emissions from deforestation contributes dramatically to global warming. Studies indicate that unsustainable deforestation may lead to a reduction in rainfall and, thus, a rise in temperature in the region and, consequently, the world. We need organizations to take appropriate action to protect this precious environment from the dangers that our forests are facing.

Petition to Blur

Blur New Album

Blur are an English alternative rock band. Formed in London in 1989 as Seymour, the group consists of singer Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree. Blur's debut album Leisure (1991) incorporated the sounds of Madchester and shoegazing. Following a stylistic change—influenced by English guitar pop groups such as early Pink Floyd, The Kinks, The Who, The Beatles and XTC—Blur released Modern Life Is Rubbish (1993), Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995). As a result, the band helped to popularise the Britpop genre and achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided by a famous chart battle with rival band Oasis dubbed "The Battle of Britpop". In recording their follow-up, Blur (1997), the band underwent another reinvention, showing influence from the lo-fi style of American indie rock groups. "Song 2", one of the album's singles, brought Blur mainstream success in the US. Their next album, 13 (1999) saw the band members experimenting with electronic music, as Albarn wrote more personal lyrics. In May 2002, Coxon left Blur during the recording of their seventh album Think Tank (2003). Containing electronic sounds and more minimal guitar work, the album was marked by Albarn's growing interest in hip hop and African music. After a 2003 tour without Coxon, Blur did no studio work or touring as a band, as members engaged in other projects. In 2009 Blur reunited, with Coxon back in the fold, for a series of successful reunion concerts. But since then, never released any new full-length album on studio. Just some singles. We want a new Blur Album!
