@KevinClimate "We've developed this term 'net zero' which allows us to move the burden of reducing emissions out to future generations, out to 2050 and beyond. It’s vacuous. Completely meaningless. It’s Latin for kicking the can down the road."

Indigenous leaders from Brazilian territories @ApibOficial and #XR Europe protested today infront of @EU_Commission demanding:

"Anti-deforestation law must include all regions/biomes, not just the Amazon in the 'Law on the Importation of Forest-Risk Products' (FERC)!"

#AllForAmazon Week 19

An Amazonian area the size of 3,000 football fields is being cleared daily,but apparently,is not enough:

“The Brazilian government has approved a railway that will tear apart 933km of Amazon forest & decimate countless lives & swathes of Indigenous lands.
The "#Ferrogrão" project is being rushed through by Bolsonaro’s government,with heavy backing from agribusiness greedy giants like Bunge, ADM & Cargill.

The situation is extremely serious. Experts confirmed that if this railway gets built, the damage will be irreversible.
Any moment now,the erasure of ancient🌳& villages could begin,but we can still stop this horror.Indigenous leaders are urgently asking 4 OUR support–if ppl across the 🌎 show we're watching,we can ramp up the pressure on decision-makers in Brazil & abroad to halt this atrocity”.
