Global Day of Action for the Amazon
Demonstrators filled the streets for the Global Day of Action for the Amazon outside of Brazilian embassies and the offices of corporations profiting from Amazon destruction.
In more than twenty countries across six continents, thousands of people marched, blocked traffic, displayed art, and held vigils, sit-ins, and other events to stand in solidarity with indigenous communities fighting to protect their homes from destruction.
We are so grateful to everyone who answered this emergency call to action from Earth defenders in the Amazon. Protecting forests and upholding the rights of indigenous peoples are among the most effective defenses we have against climate breakdown.
