Solidarity with Brazil
In this dire moment for Brazil, hope lives within the social movements on the frontlines of the pandemic. This campaign was created to allow people around the world to contribute with the struggle of the Indigenous, the quilombola (Black rural communities), the traditional rural communities and the impoverished urban neighbourhoods. These are the groups who have bravely resisted for centuries and who inspire us to keep fighting.
The pandemic exposed Bolsonaro's most perverse and genocidal side. We will not remain silent while the government destroys basic rights, the environment, basic services, people's dignity, democracy - and fundamentally - lives.
We call on people around the world, of all nationalities, languages and ethnicity to join this call for solidarity. Donate with whatever you can and share this campaign!
Where is the money going?
All the money raised (minus processing fees) will be distributed to the grassroots organizations supporting communities impacted by COVID-19:
• APIB - Network of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil
• CONAQ - National Coordination of the Network of Black Quilombola Rural Communities
• National Network of Traditional Peoples and Communities;
•Urban movements: 1) Sociedade do Bem Viver, 2) Uneafro, 3) MTST - Movement of the Homeless Workers and 4) Periferia Viva
How much is a $30 donation worth in each currency (estimated conversion rate): CAD$ 30 = R$ 118, EURO$ 30 = R$ 181 and USD$ 30 = R$ 160.
