Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro has pushed for a law that would allow mining on Indigenous reservations, seizing on global fertiliser shortages caused by the Ukraine war. Bolsonaro, who has cut back environmental enforcement in the Amazon and defunded the government’s Indigenous protection agency Funai, said on Monday in a radio interview: “This crisis between Ukraine and Russia is a good opportunity for us, we have a bill in Congress that will allow us to exploit those Indigenous lands”.
