Eye on the Amazon

We Made Our Voices Heard All Over the World – and We're Just Getting Started!

"Just getting angry on social media is not enough to address the scale of Amazon destruction we are witnessing. We need to stop this absurdity... We must get organized, get active, and join forces in defense of the Amazon and in defense of our future."

Sônia Guajajara, Executive Coordinator of APIB

Yesterday, demonstrators filled the streets for the Global Day of Action for the Amazon outside of Brazilian embassies and the offices of corporations profiting from Amazon destruction.

In more than twenty countries across six continents, thousands of people marched, blocked traffic, displayed art, and held vigils, sit-ins, and other events to stand in solidarity with indigenous communities fighting to protect their homes from destruction.

We are so grateful to everyone who answered this emergency call to action from Earth defenders in the Amazon. Protecting forests and upholding the rights of indigenous peoples are among the most effective defenses we have against climate breakdown.

We know who is responsible for these catastrophic fires and the accelerating destruction of the Amazon, and together we will hold them accountable.

Below are just a few photos from the multitude of events that took place worldwide.
