    Amazon Jungle needs signatures

    Post  Paulus on Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:32 pm

    If we don;t have the Earth and her trees to feed us, we all die (mebbe no bad thing), but whilst we're here it'd be better if we could try gerrin some of the ignorant fuckers on the planet to stop poisoning Nature and killing its incredible creatures. The Amazon - as we all know - is an immensely imnportant aspect of the Earth's body and is still being plundered for cash by greedy capitalists. For what good it may do, please spend a minute just signing the petition to enact some change.

    "The Amazon is in serious danger: Brazil is on the verge of gutting its forest protection laws -- unless we act now, vast tracts of our planet’s lungs could be opened up to clear-cutting devastation.

    This threat to the Amazon has sparked widespread anger and protests across the country and tensions are rising. In an effort to stifle criticism, armed thugs, allegedly hired by loggers, have murdered environmental advocates. But the movement is fighting back -- in three days, brave indigenous people are leading massive marches across Brazil to demand action and inside sources say President Dilma is considering vetoing the changes.

    79% of Brazilians support a veto of the forest law changes and this internal pressure is leading some in Dilma's administration to back a veto. But we need a global cry of solidarity with the Brazilian people to really force Dilma's hand. Our global petition will be boldly displayed on banners at the front of the massive marches for Amazon protection. Let's reach one million to SAVE THE AMAZON! Sign the urgent petition and send this on to everyone."
