Animal rights activists and environmentalists gathered together on New Year's day in more than a dozen cities around the world to speak out against newly-inaugurated Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his plans to, essentially, privatize parts of the Amazon rainforest. 

In downtown Toronto, protesters blocked off the intersection of Bay and Bloor, near the Brazillian Consulate, to stage a "die-in" and perform a play called "If the Amazon rainforests dies, we all die!" "

Stop Bolsonaro!" they chanted. "End Animal Agriculture in the Amazon, Go Vegan!"
