Meet the extraordinary women fighters protecting their environment in the Amazon region of Para. The first to take to the streets, occupy and strike to defend their communities in the teeth of mega “development” projects and the rampant deforestation in one of the most violent and militarised area of Brazil. Made over 30 years ago, the environmental and social messages of these women have a vital relevance for today’s bitter struggles to defend the rainforest from Bolsonaro’s devastating policies “to liberate mining, agribusiness and land leasing in the Amazon basin.”
