The Amazon is the planet's largest remaining rainforest, teeming with more wildlife than anywhere else on Earth. But this majestic rainforest is caught between the twin destructive forces of deforestation and climate change. Indigenous Peoples are campaigning for an end to deforestation in the Amazon by 2018 and globally by 2020

The Amazon is a vast and majestic rainforest teeming with an estimated quarter of all known land species. The jaguar, the pink river dolphin, the sloth, the world's largest flower, a monkey the size of a toothbrush and a spider the size of a baseball are just a few of the species that we know about - there are many more yet to be discovered.

It is also home to over 20 million people including hundreds of indigenous peoples, some of which have never been contacted by the 'outside world'.

And finally, the Amazon stores 80 to 120 billion tonnes of carbon, helping to stabilise the planet's climate.

Here just three specific cases to take solutions immediately

FIRST CASE: IN THE SURUI LAND

With a desperate appeal, the indigenous Paiter Surui turn to the world: armed illegal woodcutters, gold and diamond cutters invade their rain forest. They rust the trees and threaten the inhabitants. Encourage the Brazilian government to act immediately and stop deforestation.

The Government of Brazil, President Michel Temer and the Minister responsible

"The Brazilian government is to protect the rainforest and the indigenous Paiter Surui immediately from loggers, gold and diamonds!" Paiter Surui live in their 250,000 hectare territory in the Amazon rainforest. And need to be protected.

We do not know what else to do. Please help us!

SECOND CASE: IN THE XINGU LAND
In the Amazon, Natives Fight to Stop Brazil's Next Big Dam

Brazil’s Belo Monte Dam is the biggest dam under construction in the world. The $14.4 billion project intended to help meet rising demands for energy.

But local tribes worry the project could cause serious environmental damage. Dam reservoirs can create large amounts of methane gas, which can be more harmful than carbon emissions, and big floods.
Despite protests, Belo Monte Dam seems destined for completion and it won’t be the only one to come to the area. Of the country’s 48 planned dams, 30 are in the rainforest.

The Petition says: The dam flooded a large area to dry up certain parts of the Xingu River, which gives the rainforest great havoc and fish stocks reduced the indigenous peoples in the area depend for their survival.

Construction of the dam attracts a large number of migrant workers and colonists who probably bring diseases to the Indians and endanger their lives. Invasions of indigenous territories and violence are likely to increase.

The livelihoods of thousands of tribal people who depend on the forest and river for food and water could be destroyed.

The Indians were not consulted properly over the dam, in violation of Brazilian and international law.

FUNAI has said that uncontacted Indians live in the area. You are most at risk. They have little or no resistance to outside diseases and the effects of the dam could be fatal for them.

We urge Your Excellency to suspend the project until the extract, and if not indigenous communities have given their free, prior and informed consent and was officially recognized and protected the land where uncontacted Indians live.

Sign this petition in order to demand to stop the construction of Damns en the Amazon.

THIRD CASE: STOP COMPANIES DESTROYING THE AMAZON RAINFOREST

What happens to the rainforest with fast-food company
McDonald, Burger King and KFC tell where the meat is coming! These companies are responsible for ensuring that the habitat of Jaguar and Monkey is destroyed. Cattle for the "Whopper" are fed with soya that can come from deforestation. The group refuses to answer detailed questions. We ask them, no food to sell, if they have destroyed nature.

To: CEO and management of Mc Donald, Burger King and KFC

"These companies suppliers for clearing fields and pastures in South America forests. Do not buy raw materials from the destruction of nature. Promote meat free! "

Sloth climbing through the trees, jaguars sneak through the forest, monkeys frolic in the trees - South America's forests and savannahs are overflowing with life. But fast-food chains such as these compagnies risking the destruction of these diverse habitats.

Sign this petition. Let's save the Amazon Rainforest TOGETHER

With a desperate appeal, the indigenous Paiter Surui turn to the world: armed illegal woodcutters, gold and diamond cutters invade their rain forest. They rust the trees and threaten the inhabitants. Encourage the Brazilian government to act immediately and stop deforestation.
The Government of Brazil, President Michel Temer and the Minister responsible

“The Brazilian government is to protect the rainforest and the indigenous Paiter Surui immediately from loggers, gold and diamonds!” Paiter Surui live in their 250,000 hectare territory in the Amazon rainforest. Here the abridged translation of the original letter of the Indigenes in Portuguese to the world publicity:

Rondônia, Brazil, 13 October 2016

My name is Almir Narayamoga Surui and I am the leader of the indigenous people of Surui. We live in the state of Rondônia in Brazil.

This is an emergency call! Please act immediately!

Since the beginning of 2016, we are suffering from the invasion of our country by woodcutters as well as gold and diamonds. Every day, 300 trucks with tropical timber leave our area. This corresponds to 600 hectares of rainforest. According to the Brazilian constitution, it is illegal to settle an indigenous reserve.

The invaders use heavy machinery like bulldozer. In three rivers of Surui territory we have found mercury and cyanide, which the gold-seekers use to bind the metal.

The impact is terrible: apart from the environmental damage that destroys our traditional way of life, the invaders threaten our families with weapons! So that we do not resist, they keep us pistols on their heads. Other inhabitants try to smear them with money. The location is terrible!

The Brazilian government does not react despite our help in tackling this mafia. Through her silence she makes herself the compliment of the destruction of the rainforest and the destruction of our people!

We do not know what else to do. Please help us!

SECOND CASE: WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE XINGU LAND
In the Amazon, Natives Fight to Stop Brazil’s Next Big Dam.

A group of local tribes have occupied the Belo Monte Dam construction site, truing to suspend works on the country’s biggest infrastructure project.
Brazil’s Belo Monte Dam is the biggest dam under construction in the world. The $14.4 billion project intended to help meet rising demands for energy.

But local tribes worry the project could cause serious environmental damage. Dam reservoirs can create large amounts of methane gas, which can be more harmful than carbon emissions, and big floods. Another dam project in Brazil, Balbina Dam, flooded 930 square miles of rainforest after its completion in the 1980s; its reservoir is referred to as a “methane factory” by Philip Fearnside of the National Institute for Amazonian Research in a recent issue of the Economist.

Despite protests, Belo Monte Dam seems destined for completion and it won’t be the only one to come to the area. Of the country’s 48 planned dams, 30 are in the rainforest. Construction on Bele Monte is due to finish in 2019.

Amazon Indians from different tribes have hold marchs to demonstrate their unity before delivering their response to a government proposal to end their occupation of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam construction site.

THIRD CASE: ABOUT THE COMPANIES DESTROYING THE AMAZON RAINFOREST

McDonald’s, Burger King and Kentuky Fried Chicken (KFC), tell where the meat is coming! Burger King is responsible for ensuring that the habitat of Jaguar and Monkey is destroyed. Cattle for the “Whopper” are fed with soya that can come from deforestation. The group refuses to answer detailed questions. Ask for Burger King, no food to sell, was destroyed for nature.

To: CEO and the management of McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC

“McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC suppliers for clearing fields and pastures in South America forests. Do not buy raw materials from the destruction of nature. Promote meat free! ”

Sloth climbing through the trees, jaguars sneak through the forest, monkeys frolic in the trees – South America’s forests and savannahs are overflowing with life. But fast-food chains such as Burger King risking the destruction of these diverse habitats.

“South America’s forests are” Ground Zero “of deforestation for the production of beef,” the scientists warn of the “Union of Concerned Scientists.” In a study they show how little food companies care about nature. In an assessment of how environmentally friendly is the beef production by numerous companies, Burger King got zero out of a hundred possible points.

Mc Donald’s, Burger King and KFC buys its meat apparently of farms that feed it to their animals for fattening soy, for its cultivation in South America forests and savannas were cleared. The show satellite images and research organization Mighty Earth in Brazil and Bolivia. The Group takes it that Cargill, a major supplier until 2030 soya from deforestation supplies – 13 more years in which bulldozers destroy the habitat of sloth, jaguar and monkeys.

In Germany, the beef for the “Whopper” is derived according to the company, although 100 percent from Germany and Austria. Burger King refuses to answer detailed questions about the origin of the animal feed. In global terms, is McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC purchasing policies disastrous for the environment.

Please request from Burger King to immediately refer any raw materials of environmental degradation.

Representing the fast-food industry, we are attacking McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC – which other companies take similar little regard to forests and animals. Rainforests and millions of animals would benefit the way most when more and more people eat vegetarian or vegan.
