Amazon rainforest is burning — Bolsonaro is a modern Nero

An immense ecological disaster has been taking place for over two weeks in the "earth's lungs", the Amazon rainforest in South America

According to the estimations of Brazilian and Bolivian authorities, more than 500,000 acres of virgin forest have already been destroyed, thousands of wild animals have been killed and several local tribes have been affected. 

It must be noted that the area of Amazon covers 7.4 million square kilometres (5 million sq klm consist of dense rainforest), spreading to 9 countries including Brazil (60%), Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, Equador, Paraguay, Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana. The huge rainforest of Amazon has been characteristed as the "earth's lungs", taking into account that it absorbs approximately 1 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

Bolsonaro the fascist: Brazil's new president threatens to target Cuba and Venezuela

Brazil’s fascist new president Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday that he would take all action “within the rule of law and democracy” to oppose the governments of Venezuela and Cuba

A fervent anticommunist, praiser of the crimes committed during the 1964-1985 dictatorial military regime in Brazil and loyal ally of U.S. imperialism, Bolsonaro unleashed threats against Cuba and Venezuela during a Facebook live video, without providing further details. 

It is characteristic that the U.S. government has expressed its support towards Bolsonaro, counting on the new Brazilian administration for the implementation of the imperialist plans in Latin America.
