The extent of false statements from Brazilian current federal government is unparalleled. Minister of the environment @rsallesmma published in his twitter account an edited video to falsely accuse @GreenpeaceBR of not helping in the oil clean up in Brazilian Northeastern coast(+)
A day after, Salles accused greenpeace members of terrorists due to a peaceful act in Brasilia, creating distractions for his own inoperation. Few months ago, @jairbolsonaro accused NGOs for the #AmazonFire. He was interpelled by Brazilian Supreme Court @STF_Official (+)
for that statement and responded by saying that it was "mere opinion". Yesterday, @reporterb published that investigations by Brazilian federal police indicates that farmers and businessmen organized the infamous "fire day" in the Amazon Rainforest region

Deze zomer zijn we 3 weken rondgereisd in Italië met ons gezin: wandelen in de Dolomieten, een week bij Napels, week Florence, paar dagen Venetië. Prima vakantie, prachtige dingen gezien. Vaak zelf gekookt (nou ja, mijn vrouw) omdat vegetarisch anders lastig is daar.
Maar wat me nou opviel in Italië: op alle potjes groenten en broodsmeersels stond vermeld “zonder #palmolie”. In Nederland is het door activisten ook al ooit op de agenda gezet, maar na thuiskomst bleken al onze potjes wél palmolie te bevatten!
Kennelijk zijn die - terechte - acties tegen #PalmOil een zachte dood gestorven hier. Alleen de laatste maanden zien we een opleving ivm het #Mercosur verdrag en de tragische #AmazonFire ‘s.

1/ The Amazon forest is burning up, we’ve all heard about it by now. What can you do about it? A thread in 8 chapters. 🌳🔥👩🏼‍🚒💪🏾
2/ Spread the word, help raise awareness. Just like @GretaThunberg gave all of us & those in power no option but to listen and act, you can now do the same with the Amazon. Inform yourself and share the knowledge: blog.ecosia.org/brazils-amazon…
@GretaThunberg 3/ There are many organisation you can donate to to help protect animal & tree species living in the Amazon. Consider donating to the @WWF or @RnfrstAlliance , for example. Comment under this tweet for more organizations protecting the Amazon!

here’s a thread of what will fucking happen if the amazon rainforest dies:

#PrayforAmazonas #AmazonRainforest #AmazonFire
1. faltering rainfall & increased drought
— and you know what happens with less rain? less water to drink and food to eat, affecting rich agriculture.
2. more greenhouse gases
— meaning poorer air quality and hotter fucking temperatures, and not just in fucking brazil.
