Being able to talk about genocide and to fight for human rights and the little democracy we still have without fear! This was one of the subjects discussed at the Virtual Demonstration for Democracy (Manifão da Democracia) on September 7th.

Brazil is the world’s third most deadly country for environmental defenders and 90% of murders occur in the Amazon. Can you picture fighting for what you believe, for the laws, for our forest and receiving death threats for it?

This is everyday life for Erasmo Theófilo, a family farmer and activist who defends the riverine community and family farmers of Anapu, in the state of Pará. He has survived attempts on his life and received multiple threats from land grabbers in the region, as seen in the video.

We will not let him be a statistic. We will not allow anyone to perpetuate this battle cycle that has reached international proportions since the murder of missionary Dorothy Stang. We will fight the people who feel they have the power to destroy our forest, appropriate land, promote violence and get away with it. Let’s fight for Brazil, for democracy, for life – ours and Erasmo’s! Erasmo can’t become a R.I.P. shirt (#NãoPodeVirarCamiseta).
