As Common Dreams has reported, the government of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has accelerated the exploitation of the Amazon.
Devries explains that humans are taking the world’s most precious rainforest resource for granted and cutting it down “at a rate of thousands of square kilometers a year.”

“Why are we doing this?” continues Devries. “Mostly for hamburgers and the like.”
Mercy for Animals managing director Sandra Lopes, in a statement, said that “since the main cause of deforestation in the Amazon is meat production, it’s imperative that governments, corporations, and individuals around the world take action to reduce global meat consumption and increase the availability of plant-based foods.”
“The Amazon rainforest is a fundamental ecosystem for the planet and the climate,” said Lopes. “If we don’t act now to protect it, the future of life on Earth will be at risk.”
