Brazil: Video of Tribute to Murdered Forest Heroes

Watch the footage [en/pt] of Laísa Sampaio's speech at the UN on February, as she received a posthumous tribute to her sister Maria do Espírito Santo and brother-in-law José Cláudio, closing the International Year of Forests. Because of their efforts to protect the forest, they were killed. Laísa says “the Amazon is stained in blood” and demanded policies to support sustainable livelihoods.
