    This surge in mining threatens not only the Amazon's biodiversity but also the health and survival of the Yanomami people. We must stand with them against this injustice! #StopAmazonMining #SaveTheAmazon

          One minute we are conserving the Amazon, the next minute mining is going on in the very forest. Who is fooling who?

            @winnie_nguru Lula is fooling the world with his fake commitments to protect the Amazon... and it's regrettable

            This is concerning, quick action needs to be done as increased mining in the Amazon can have devastating environmental and social impacts.

              @walter_lungayi Lula should place this forest heavy security and treat it as a national protected area

              Lula has failed to protect the Amazon, he is only interested in economic growth.

                @gorffly_mokua It is a shame to see that no matter how well a country is economically it can't buy life for its citizens when the extinction of humanity happens due to a lack of conservation of our environment

                      @princess_nel_268 Action is needed ASAP... the destruction of the Amazon will contribute to the loss of biodiversity, and culture and the destruction of the indigenous communities living there... it is saddening just to imagine
