A Third Environmental Activist Shot and Killed in Brazil

Adelino Ramos, a rural activist protecting the dwindling land of the Amazon, was murdered this Friday in Porto Velho, the capital of Rondonia, Brazil.

He’s the third reported activist that has been killed this week for his public denouncements of the illegal logging activity that has been decimating the Amazon Rain Forest, which is now, unfortunately, becoming a common occurrence.

Thousands of activists have been slain over the conflict since 1988, the loggers themselves paying these gunmen to instill fear and ‘shut up the public.’

This attack comes only days after world-renowned activist couple Jose Claudio Ribeiro da Silva and his wife, Maria were also murdered for reporting illegal loggers.

There is little to no justice for the murderers, as the Brazilian government’s corruption runs high — less than 100 cases have ever reached the court.

Said Leonora Brunetto, a 65 year old Roman Catholic nun and activist who is currently on the death-threat list: “The impunity for killing us is getting worse by the day. We can cry out, denounce what is happening to the forest, but it continues. I see no end to it.”
