THE WORLD TO DILMA: Save the Amazon
Thousands marched through the streets of São Paulo earlier this year.
1,408,899 people from more than 100 countries have signed a petition at Avaaz.org calling on President Dilma to make Brazil an international leader on the environment by taking immediate action to save Brazil's precious forests.
Now, with a very bad Forest Code on a fast track through Congress, a presidential veto may be the only way to save the forest.
Read WWF's excellent review of the current situation.
Here's a link (Google translation) to the reports from the coalition of activist in defense of the forest.
