Pig Iron Vessel Anchor Occupation, Brazil.

Image | May 14, 2012

Greenpeace activists occupy the anchor chain of the ship Clipper Hope, near São Luis do Maranhão port, with a banner reading ‘Amazon Crime' and 'Dilma, Desliga a Motoserra (President Dilma, turn off the chainsaw)'. The activists are preventing the departure of the ship from the Amazon to the USA, where its cargo of pig iron will be used to make steel for the US car industry. Greenpeace is taking action to expose a trio of serious crimes in the production of Brazilian pig iron including slave labour, deforestation and the invasion of indigenous lands. The organization is calling for Dilma to protect the Amazon and the people who depend on it, as well as veto changes to the country's 'forest code' and support Greenpeace's call for zero deforestation.05/14/2012
