The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, has affirmed that in the whole country there is not “not a hectare” of forest devastated by the fires, despite the fact that in the first nine months of the year there were 76,000 outbreaks, the worst numbers since 2010, and blames the media for communication of spreading “false narratives” in this regard.

“We are finalizing a trip between Manaus and Boa Vista where we will invite diplomats from other countries to show them, in that short trip of an hour and a half, that they will not see anything burning or not even one hectare of devastated jungle“, has assured.

Freedom of the press

Bolsonaro has participated this Thursday in the investiture ceremony of almost thirty diplomats at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, from where he has asked them to “bring the truth of Brazil“abroad, the newspaper ‘O Globo’ has reported.

The far-right leader has pointed out during his speech that “the world” has always been at war “, although at present he is more focused on” communications “and has assured that” despite everything “, his government” preserves the freedom of the press“.

“We support what you write, show and disseminate, without there being any retaliation for our part, “he said.

Actual deforestation

The proposal that Bolsonaro has launched to foreign authorities during the ceremony was already suggested a few weeks ago by the vice president, also the Army general, Antonio Hamilton Mourao, as part of the Government’s thesis to deny the alleged disinformation campaign that has been orchestrated against him in the national and international media.

According to official data from the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), between August 2019 and July 2020, alerts for illegal deforestation They grew by 34.5 percent, affecting more than 9,000 square kilometers of forest, while between January and September of this year more than 76,000 fire outbreaks have been registered, the worst figure since 2010.
