What is a empate?
“It is a form of struggle that we have found to prevent deforestation. We stand before the pedestrians and jagunfos, with our families, women, children and old people, and we ask them not to desmatarem and to leave the place. They, as workers, we explain, are also threatened by the future. And this thrilled speech always produces results. Even because the deforest is the simple, defenseless and unconscious pawn. ”
(Chico Mendes, Jornal do Brasil, 13 days before his assassination).
