In 2019 Jair Bolsonaro becomes the President of Brazil. The same year register a record number of fires in the Amazon region and deforestation returns to growth after years of decline. 2020 is even worse. Thousands of kilometres are travelled to understand how the Amazon defence system has been systematically weakened by the Bolsonaro administration to favour soybean and meat industries.
War on the Amazon is a reportage that sheds light on the consequences of the Bolsonaro administration’s policies on the Brazilian rainforest.
