In the beginning the people opened the forest in two to make way for the giant road. Then, humbly, the settlers, wich came from far away, began to cultivate the land in the middle of the jungle, where they gradually cut down the trees around their homes to make way for their subsistence crops.
Rich farmers soon also began to arrive and became “owners” of the land expelling the former colonists, leaving them landless. This land belongs to no one. There are no rules, no laws, just the pecking order.
Then the forest is cut down to make way for cattle pastures. The remaining fields are used for large and destructive monocultures, such as soybean or eucalyptus, which will be used to feed livestock or for the production of coal for large steel companies, which have a major impact on the environment. Finally, when the land has no more resources and becomes barren, and the air becomes so polluted that it becomes impossible to live in this region, the people are forced to migrate again.
The Amazon is huge, nothing belongs to anyone, so perhaps because of this, nobody cares of their backyard.
