Action for Amazonia Rally

Sunday, September 1, 2019 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

The rally will gather at the dinosaur on Forbes Ave., and continue with a potluck on Schenley Plaza.

The Amazon Rainforest has seen an 80% increase in fires since 2018. And 99% percent of the fires result from human actions "either on purpose or by accident," said Alberto Setzer, a senior scientist at INPE. The burning can range from a small-scale agricultural practice, to new deforestation for a mechanized and modern agribusiness project. The Indigenous People and all life-forms of the Amazon Rainforest are calling upon the rest of the world to TAKE ACTION.

Please join us to raise public awareness, gain media attention, and propose small solutions that we can all do to boycott companies that profit off the exploitation of the Amazon Rainforest. #ActionForAmazonia
