#SOSBrazil: help block a disastrous vote on forest law

Brazil’s top scientists have come out strongly against proposed changes to the country’s forest law (or Forest Code). The changes, which could destroy up to 76 million hectares of forest - that's an area the size of Chile, bigger than Germany, Italy and Austria combined - are opposed by most Brazilians, but parliament has been voting in favour. The final vote is due on 7 March - our best hope is to block it and delay a decision. You can play a vital part by spreading the urgent message online. We're using twitter hashtag #SOSBrazil.
