Lo spirito di Assisi

Prayer for the Brazilian Amazon rainforest

2 Settembre 2022

The Brazilian Amazon rainforest has been hit strongly by fires more than at any point in nearly five years, worsened by illegal deforestation. Satellites have detected more than 33,000 fires in the area. The fires can be caused by groups who use the space for cattle to graze. Environmental land defenders and indigenous groups are trying to protect the area. However, they face violence and suppression.
