Put Out the Fires!
Dec. 11, 2019, 8 a.m.
JOIN WITH XR BRAZIL SAVING THE AMAZON RAINFOREST
XR Brazil is calling for help. Come to the Brazilian Consulate and demand Bolsonaro stop the fires, preserve the rainforest, and prevent the murders of indigenous leaders. Every tree felled represents more species lost and more carbon released into the atmosphere, accelerating climate breakdown. The Amazon is the world’s largest rainforest and is a massive carbon-sink and cloud factory which produces much of our fresh water and regulates the global climate. It is fast approaching an irreversible tipping point of transitioning to a drier savannah-like ecosystem.
We will stand in solidarity with those in resistance. We call on the Brazilian government and world leaders to respect the territorial rights and prevent the abuse and murders of indigenous peoples. We call on citizens in the U.S. to boycott U.S. commodities and financial services complicit in this destruction.
When: Wed., December 11, 8AM until about 10:00AM
Where: Starting at South Station with a march to the Brazilian Consulate
Featuring: lots of signs, Brazilian music (we hope live), a few speakers, leafletting at South Station, followed by a march to Consulate for brief stop.
