Chico Mendes

Chico Mendes quote, Via Oberdan, Livorno
O legado “A floresta nos une diante do perigo comum, nos faz mais fraternos. É por isso que meu trabalho em defesa da Amazônia não pode parar”, Chico Mendes. (The legacy: “The forest unites us in front of the common threat, makes us more fraternal. That is why my work in defense of the Amazon can not stop”, Chico Mendes).
Coat of arms of Acre, Via Oberdan, Livorno
This portrait and this quote of Chico Mendes are on a shutter in Via Oberdan. On the next shutter I saw the coat of arms of the Republic of Acre with its motto: “Nec luceo pluribus impar” (I am not shining less than many).

Don't get me started on the Amazon. These are striking.
