The election of BOLSONARO in Brazil is terrifying if you’re a woman, a person of colour, a LGBTQIA+ person, an ally to any of these minorities, a defender of free speech, a defender of the environment.
Right now the Bolsonaro election has legitimised an increase in hate crimes throughout Brazil. But more BAD news is going to follow. His plan to merge the environmental ministry with the agriculture ministry, combined with his rhetoric around viewing the Amazon as nothing more than an opportunity for Aggressive Capitalism, means that Bolsonaro may preside over the biggest climate wrecking government of any nation yet to come. If the Amazon goes, we all go.
If you want to know the climate science, watch this short animation:
We need to fight back. We need to show our solidarity! We need to create diplomatic crisis to show the world that we do not accept these criminals as our leaders.
We also need a party 🙂
Come to the Brazilian Embassy at 17:30 on Thursday 15th November. With our dancing bodies we will shut the embassy down until we have Bolsonaro on the line and listening to our resistance. We need you to bring your bodies, music, sparkles and glory! Come and help us make a party happen.
More land and environmental defenders have been killed in Brazil than any other country. Brazil is the most dangerous country to live in if you are LGBTQIA+. This is REAL. Come and help us resist.
