Conservation area reduced by 1 million hectares in just 2 days

Carta de Atalanta

In only 2 days the government reduced a conservation area by more than 1 million hectares. “Following significant advances in reducing the rate of deforestation, the demarcation of indigenous lands and the creation of conservation units in the past decade, while maintaining strong economic growth, record harvests, and job creation, Brazil seems to be back in the 1980s When there was an international outcry because of the accelerated destruction of our natural heritage and violence in the countryside. “

This is an excerpt from the protest letter against the coordinated attack by the National Congress and the Michel Temer government on the environmental protection and indigenous rights made by the Climate Observatory at when meeting in Atalanta, Santa Catarina. The document lists several setbacks made by the government in recent months, in what may be the biggest anti-environmental offensive since the proclamation of the 1988 Constitution.
