      Environment Inspectors Forced To Flee Amazonas Town

      CURITIBA
      In a reaction against the closing of 11 lumberyards due to environmental irregularities, lumberers held a protest in Manacapuru (99 km from Manaus). As a security measure, the officers from Ibama (Brazil’s environmental agency) who shut the yards down, left town.

      During the demonstration, some protesters carried posters mentioning president-elect, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL), who has accused Ibama of practicing “radical environmental activism.”

      “The group used fireworks and threatened to head towards the hotel where environmental agents were staying, but the team had already left,” said a spokesperson from Ibama, in a statement.
