Petition to Leonardo DiCaprio

DiCaprio, processe nosso presidente!

>>>>>>PORTUGUÊS Querido Leo, Nos referimos a você assim com tanta intimidade porque há tempos acompanhamos as suas muitas vidas nas telas. Nos debulhamos em lágrimas quando Romeu pensou que Julieta estava morta, pelo menos uma vez abrimos nossos braços e gritamos ao vento “I'm the king of the world!” e torcemos para que Frank Abagnale Jr. sempre escapasse. Também por isso sentimos que podemos clamar por sua ajuda como quem pede auxílio a um super-herói. Recentemente, o presidente brasileiro lançou denúncias falsas contra você, acusando-o de colocar fogo na Amazônia. Essa afirmação, que à primeira vista pode parecer apenas patética, é, no fundo, trágica e grave. Desde a campanha eleitoral, ele vem dando declarações enganosas, preconceituosas e violentas sobre negros, indígenas, comunidade LGBTQI+, mulheres e outros grupos socialmente vulneráveis. É notório que a violência e o ódio a esses grupos vêm crescendo no Brasil, autorizados por tais declarações. Na mesma ocasião em que você foi acusado de incendiar a Amazônia, a sede da Saúde e Alegria – uma das ONGs atuantes na Amazônia mais reconhecidas do mundo – foi invadida pela polícia. Quatro ativistas voluntários da Brigada de Incêndio de Alter do Chão foram presos, acusados de colocar fogo na Amazônia – assim como você. No mesmo dia, um exército de criadores de fake news começou a fazer circular falsas gravações e conversas de WhatsApp que "provavam" a participação desses jovens idealistas na produção de incêndios. Veja que aqui a ficção anda a serviço da manipulação da realidade e tem gerado injustiça e violência. Nós aqui, crendo no alcance benéfico da ficção, imaginamos que um processo judicial de um astro de Hollywood contra a mentira deslavada e irresponsável de um presidente poderia ajudar a trazer justiça àqueles que como você foram acusados, mas que seguem sendo encarcerados, ameaçados de morte e sofrendo perseguição judicial. Por isso iniciamos aqui uma campanha: Leonardo DiCaprio, por favor, processe o nosso presidente. #DiCaprioSueOurPresident #DiCaprioProcesseNossoPresidente Cordialmente, CAI - Comitê de Amigos Imaginários   >>>>>>>ENGLISH Dear Leo, We refer to you like that so intimately because we have long been following your many lives on screen. We burst into tears when Romeo thought Juliet was dead, at least once we spread our arms and shouted to the wind "I'm the king of the world!" and we sincerely hoped Frank Abagnale Jr. would escape. This is also why we feel we can appeal to you as someone who asks help from a superhero. Recently, the Brazilian president threw false allegations against you, accusing you of setting fire to the Amazon rainforest. This statement, which at first glance may seem only pathetic, is indeed tragic and serious. Since the election campaign, he has been giving misleading, prejudiced and violent statements about black and indigenous people, LGBTQI+ community, women and other socially vulnerable groups. It is well known that violence and hatred towards these groups has been growing, authorized by these statements. At the same time that you were accused of burning down the forest, the headquarters of Saúde e Alegria – one of the most recognized Amazonian NGOs in the world – was overrun by police. Four volunteer activists from the Alter do Chão Fire Brigade were arrested by police on charges of setting fire to the Amazon – just like you.  On the same day, an army of fake news creators began circulating fake WhatsApp recordings and conversations that "proved" the participation of these young idealists in the production of fires. Note that here fiction is at the service of manipulation of reality and has generated injustice and violence. We, believing in the beneficial range of fiction, imagine that a Hollywood star's lawsuit against a president's blatant and irresponsible lie could help bring justice to those who like you have been accused, but continue to be incarcerated, threatened with death and suffering judicial persecution. Therefore we started now a campaign: Leonardo DiCaprio, please sue our president! #DiCaprioSueOurPresident #DiCaprioProcesseNossoPresidente Best Wishes, Imaginary Friends Committee

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.
