The North and the South, are interconnected and share a common home — the Earth.
This tool explains the importance of the Amazon for humanity, identifies the threats faced by this biome and its peoples and calls for mobilization in solidarity with the defenders of the Earth.
It features the “prayer for our earth” from Pope Francis’s encyclical, Laudato Si’.
This tool provides a deeper understanding of the Amazon; its role in maintaining the health of the planet; and the threats faced by its forests, rivers and people. It also outlines the campaign’s advocacy strategy, including questions to ask Members of Parliament and much more.
Canadians are invited to sign or write a letter of solidarity to two communities in the Brazilian Amazon whose land, water and way of life are being threatened by mining and logging companies. We will use the signatures gathered to advocate for the recognition and protection of these peoples’ rights.
This sheet is designed to accompany the Solidarity Letter and describes the dire threats to two Brazilian Amazon communities — the seringueiros of Machadinho d’Oeste and the Indigenous Mura people of Manaus.
The Campaign Guide was included in the Campaign Ordering Kit and will also be included with each order.
