It’s unfortunate what happens in our forests every year. Fires that trigger at night, suspects are arrested and released shortly thereafter, shattered lives… Much is discussed, some blame the owners of the lands, others the means used for prevention and combat, though the heart of the matter is left out of discussion. I see external interests involved and impunity for those who commit such crimes. While the governors maintain a passive attitude, regretting what happened instead of acting against criminals, our forests will continue to burn. The trunks of pine dressing black will be despicably replaced by eucalyptus, or other profitable businesses.

É lamentável o que acontece nas nossas florestas ano após ano. Fogos que deflagram de noite, suspeitos detidos e libertados pouco tempo depois, vidas destruídas… Muito se discute, atribuem-se culpas aos donos dos terrenos, aos meios de prevenção e combate mas, como em quase tudo, não se discute o cerne da questão. Os jogos de interesses, a impunidade sobre quem comete tais crimes. Enquanto os governantes mantiverem a atitude passiva de lamentar o sucedido, em vez de agir contra os criminosos, as nossas florestas continuarão a arder. Os troncos dos pinheiros vestir-se-ão de negro e serão vilmente trocados por eucaliptos, ou outros negócios rentáveis.

    Uma foto que retrata aquilo que, infelizmente,
    mais está a acontecer nestes últimos dias…

      A primeira de outras fotos deste flagelo que nos afeta todos os verões. Pouco tenho a acrescentar e comentar.
