Amazon rainforest: Steady process of cutting it down

In the time it takes to read this email, 16 football fields of Amazon rainforest will be cut down.

There’s a game-changing plan to stop this madness.

The Amazon provides 20% of the world’s oxygen, 10% of our species and is our best defense against climate change.

To save it, Avaaz has joined forces with indigenous communities that call the Amazon home to back the best idea ever: a gigantic international park, the largest reserve in the world, protecting an area twice the size of France!

A million of us have already campaigned for this plan, and the Colombian government now supports it!

We just need to win Brazil.

President Dilma’s popularity is in the toilet, and she desperately needs a crowd pleaser —

Brazilians love the Amazon, so insiders say she could go for it!
To win Dilma over before the powerful ranching and mining lobbyists do, we need to rapidly make this a hugely popular public appeal in Brazil — with inspiring calls from celebrities, compelling ads, and high profile visits from indigenous leaders.

If 50,000 of us donate just the cost of a drink or a meal each in the next 24 hours, we’ll have enough to do it.
