Rainforest Activist and Wife Murdered in Brazil

A rainforest activist in Brazil (JosΓ© ClΓ‘udio Ribeiro da Silva) who had been working to protect rainforests from logging was shot and killed this week, as well as his wife. This, ironically, happened just a few hours before Brazil horrible new legislation that will increase deforestation in the area.
