Amazonian Communities Need Solidarity, Not Saviours

So what does the solidarity look like, Mr. Willis?

Let me give you an example.
The Finnish diet consists mainly of meat. (The co relation to late in life mental disease has long been established)
Still they have implored the EU not import Brazilian Beef.
Grazing grounds for cattle reared for their meat is the chief reason for the current obliteration of the Amazon.

If anyone else has parallels, please chime in.
Stop eating meat.
Save the planet.
