An alliance by the forest - Chico Mendes Episode

Watch the first episode of NINJA Amazon Brigade series and know a bit more of the reality of those who live in the regions affected by the destruction.

After touring five states in the Amazon region and talking to communities affected by the fire, the NINJA Amazon Brigade launches its first episode in a documentary series that aims to denounce the reality of Brazilian forests and the impacts of a nefarious environmental policy.

Has been over 30 years since Chico Mendes death, Acre still defends the standing forest. Rubber leaders who fought in the 1980s now faces a new enemy: the government that allies with those who want to destroy the forest. Fires, violence, land grabbing, illegal deforestation and impunity. Meanwhile, young people are beginning to take on activism for preservation and a new alliance is being considered by indigenous leaders.
