Join with Avaaz to stop corruption killing the Amazon
Brazil’s leader is trying to sell huge chunks of protected Amazon forest to corrupt businessmen in return for political favour — the last was half the size of Germany! Together, we can stop any further sales. He’s already in crisis, suffering from unbelievably low approval ratings and under constant fire in the media for corruption and attacks on the environment.
Soon, he’ll be heading to the UN General Assembly to try and drum up a positive round of global press. Let’s ruin his plans by banding with Avaaz and showing up in NYC with two million signatures and a headline-grabbing stunt, and sending him home with only one option to save his political career: stop killing the Amazon.
Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. The Avaaz community campaigns in 15 languages, served by a core team on 6 continents and thousands of volunteers. They take action — signing petitions, funding media campaigns and direct actions, emailing, calling and lobbying governments, and organizing “offline” protests and events — to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people inform the decisions that affect us all.

How you can help
Add your signature to the cause and send your message to Brazil’s National Congress, the Special House Committee, and President Michel Temer;
“We demand that you listen to the appeal of the Brazilian people and stop, once and for all, passing laws, decrees, and any other irresponsible legislative measure to please the interests of powerful parties and politicians. This abuse triggers deforestation and the irreversible destruction of the Amazon rainforest, which is part of the shared heritage of humanity for present and future generations.”
