Will Bolsonaro be on trial for ecocide?

Slash and burn in the Amazon rainforest increased under Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

But is that a crime against humanity? Bolsonaro is now being accused of that.

The International Criminal Court in The Hague could open an investigation.

The leaders of two indigenous peoples in Brazil have filed a complaint against the President of their country, Jair Bolsonaro, at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Now the court must decide whether to open a formal investigation.

Bolsonaro is charged with crimes against humanity. He is systematically destroying the Amazon rainforest, is responsible for the murder of environmental activists and indigenous people, and undermines the work of the authorities to protect the environment and the indigenous people.

The complaint against Bolsonaro was filed by arguably France’s most famous human rights lawyer, William Bourdon.

And I mean…Since Bolsonaro took office in 2019, the Amazon fires and deforestation rate have increased noticeably.
Environmental authorities have been systematically rebuilt.

Employees with technical or environmental policy expertise had to leave, in many protected areas authorities are now understaffed or without management.

Officials have been fired for opposing deforestation.

“We believe the government will continue to use the pandemic to relax environmental guidelines,” said Rita Portela.
She is a biologist and ecology professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

A few days ago, the government also presented its plans for 2021. This includes several controversial projects – like legalizing mining projects in indigenous areas.

This catastrophic policy threatened not only species with being lost, more greenhouse gases being produced and indigenous communities being wiped out.

The loss of shelters also harbors another risk: zoonotic infections and thus the risk of new pandemics.

On the other hand, not only the far-right President Jair Bolsonaro should appear before the International Tribunal for killing the world’s green lungs every day, but also the investment giant BlackRock.

The world’s largest investor in deforestation finances companies responsible for the destruction of the Amazon.

Despite all the criticism of right-wing extremist President Jair Bolsonaro, the EU and Mercosur member states, including Brazil, have reached an agreement after more than two decades.

This creates the largest free trade area in the world.

Many criminals, except Bolsonaro, are responsible for the destruction of the Amazon.
