#13 - Days of Fire in Brazil

Brazil Worker's Podcast

News & Politics

🔊 The 13o episode of Brazil Workers’ Podcast is available: In this episode, we address an issue that concerns not only Brazil but the whole world: the destruction of forests in Brazil, especially the Amazon and the Pantanal region. The number of fires burning in standing Amazon rainforest spiked dramatically in recent weeks, threatening the forest’s biodiversity — a richness of flora and fauna not adapted to withstand the flames. The forest burned is estimated at roughly 4.6 million acres (1.8 million hectares) — an area about three-fifths the size of Belgium. The Pantanal, the largest flooded region in the world, since the end of 2019 suffers a wave of fires. It is estimated that the flames have destroyed approximately 3.3 million hectares, or 22% of the region. The images have touched people around the world. In June of this year, the CSP-Conlutas entered with a representation at the PGR (Attorney General's Office), with the demand to remove Ricardo Salles from the ministry. For the CSP-Conlutas, what the government of Bolsonaro and Salles has done is criminal!
