About 100 people gathered in front of the Brazilian consulate in San Francisco on January 18 to protest Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro’s threats against the Amazon and the indigenous people who live there.
They delivered a letter signed by over 30,000 people, declaring “Indigenous peoples and allies stand in solidarity with the people of Brazil. We stand for the Amazon, we stand for indigenous rights, we stand for human rights, we stand against violence, we stand for the safe future of human existence.”
