In 2018, Jair Bolsonaro ascended from the chair of federal deputy to the highest throne of the Brazilian Republic with the banner of ending corruption. In his inauguration, on January 1, 2019, he intoned: “I take advantage of this solemn moment and I call on each of the congressmen to help me in the mission of restoring and rebuilding our homeland, definitively freeing it from the yoke of corruption, criminality […]”. It is now up to the president to fulfill his word and free the Amazon from criminals who are stealing public lands for personal enrichment.
The data that proves the crime against public property was released this Wednesday (2) by the Institute for Environmental Research in the Amazon (Ipam). According to a study led by the organization’s director of Science, Ane Alencar, 51% of deforestation in the last three years took place on public lands, mainly (83%) in federally controlled areas. Non-Destined Public Forests were the most affected, with an increase of 85% in the deforested area, from 1,743 km² felled annually to more than 3,228 km².
In other words, it is not possible to blame only the rural producer for the deforestation of the Amazon. The end of the largest tropical forest does not only occur on private properties for the purpose of economic exploitation, whether with cattle or grains. Deforestation is much more than that. It is depredation of the Brazilian public patrimony. What is happening in the Amazon is a crime against the homeland. These are Brazilians robbing the federal government with impunity. They steal when they appropriate public lands, when they cut down trees and when they turn this heritage into an unofficial source of income and, therefore, without paying taxes.
Here is the essence of questions asked in another context by Bolsonaro to Anvisa, but which he could now answer: “What is behind this?”, “What is the interest of these perverts? [pela devastação amazônica]?” And more: why let citizens rob the public coffers with impunity? For the analysts to whom DINHEIRO asked the questions, the answer is only one: the question must be asked of the President of the Republic. The Planalto did not respond to the attempts made until the publication of this text. If it had done so, it might also explain an alarming fact: between August 2018 and July 2021 (which includes the entire current administration), deforestation in the Amazon grew by 56.6% over the same period from 2015 to 2018.
