Reclaiming Amazônia at Second Home Lisbon – 4 August 2022 – Photos below

The devastation of the Amazon Rainforest is happening in front of our eyes. The depletion of the forests, the contamination of the rivers, the loss of biodiversity and the erasure of indigenous communities.

Second Home joined forces with community-generated radio station dublab Brazil to host a special evening of art, music and discussion dedicated to the indigenous resistance of Brazil.

Blood Sap: A Manifesto of Love and Fight by Amazon Communities (7-11pm)

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the forest and plight of it peoples in this powerful audio-visual artwork created by Brazilian artists Maihara Marjorie, Thiago Duar and Watatakalu Yawalapiti.

It was a special evening, where we welcomed Zaya, an activist for indigenous rights and environmental advocate, who shed some light on the topic of the devastation of the Amazon rainforest and the indigenous people. Followed by some drinks (on the house) and the joyful soundtrack of Brazilian DJ Wagnao Duarte.

All ticket sales went to Acampamento Terra Livre – the largest mobilisation of Indigenous Peoples in Brazil fighting for the land, for life, for natural resources and for the sovereignty of the Brazilian people!
