An Easter of Peace
MALCOLM FOREST AND BONO VOX IN SÃO PAULO

Having had the opportunity of professionally interpreting Bono Vox speeches at the Morumbi Stadium, Malcolm Forest and the leader of U2 got together a number of times during the São Paulo, Brazil venue.

Malcolm Forest’s work went beyond translating, as he offered consulting services on local culture and events as well as coaching for Portuguese expressions and pronunciation.

Malcolm took this privileged opportunity to ask for Bono’s support for the campaign for the creation of a Brazilian Department of Peace. A letter was delivered to the ONE Foundation to this purpose. One must remember that the 360° Concerts happened amidst national consternation after the tragic shootings in Rio that took the lives of 12 children at the Tasso da Silveira school.

Bono Vox liked the idea and said he will consider it. He was very kind, friendly and grateful for the assistance and a bond of friendship was formed.

The concept of a Department or Ministry of Peace is long due for Brazil and the world. Usually countries have only Ministries of War or Departments of Defense. There are no official departments fully dedicated to the development of a culture of peace!

A similar campaign is now in effect in the US.

Malcolm Forest has put up an on line petition for this campaign. Please sign now too and make your Easter gesture of Peace: www.malcolmforest.com/malcolmforest/paz.htm.

Brazil was officially discovered by Portuguese navigators at Easter time in the year of 1500. The world now turns for Brazil for leadership. Let it be one of Peace and Love within us and among us. You can make a difference.

HAPPY EASTER AND GOD BLESS YOU!

MALCOLM FOREST AND GISELE BÜNDCHEN FOR MARINA SILVA

O Artist Malcolm Forest and top model Gisele Bündchen express support for Marina Silva, Brazilian Green Party presidential candidate. Last Thursday the 23rd in New York, world top model Gisele Bündchen expressed publicly her support for Marina Silva as her presidential candidate. Many other Brazilian stars and artists have manifested their support for Brazilian Green Party’s Marina Silva, in recent months. Singer and environmentalist Malcolm Forest is one.

 
MARINA SILVA FOR PRESIDENT
 

Marina Silva grew up in extreme poverty in one of the world’s most isolated areas in the Amazon and was illiterate until sixteen. She grew up as one of 12 siblings in a poor family in the province of Acre, Western Brazil Amazon. Totally dependent of the rubber plantation, the family practically lived as slaves.

She worked as a maid, learned to read, was enrolled at a public school in Rio Branco, stood for exams and started history studies. She became politically active, and an ardent proponent of negotiation, non-violence, and innovative solutions. She saw many of her fellow activists murdered. Still, she did not give in, convinced that civilization must be based on sustainability.

As Senator and Minister of the Environment of Brazil, Marina Silva dedicated her best efforts to securing the largest and richest ecosystem on earth, the Amazon rainforest. Her work, courage, her achievements are without comparison.

She reduced deforestation in the Amazon to historically low levels, by 60% from 2004 to 2007. Marina Silva used drastic measures and clamped down on all illegal activity in the forest. While protecting the rainforest, she also balanced the concerns of indigenous peoples’ traditional farming societies.

She faced enormous challenges. The ministry was weak and isolated, and deforestation in the Amazon was accelerating. Vested economic interest, sometimes criminal, were fiercely opposed and willing to go far to stop conservation. Despite this, Silva managed to forge alliances and to use laws and institutions to turn things around. Huge areas were conserved, more than 700 people were arrested for illegal activities in the forest, over 1.500 companies were closed down and equipment, properties and illegal timber were confiscated. These measures were effective. During Silva’s last three years in government, deforestation was reduced to the second lowest level in 20 years. As a result to this, the earth avoided emissions of 520 million tons of CO2, or ten times Norway’s annual emissions.

Marina Silva was forced to resign as Minister of the Environment, citing “the increasing resistance in central parts of government and the society”. The resistance became too massive after she made the government adopt a new set of measures to prevent the deforestation that was then increasing again. Marina Silva continued her struggle from her post as senator in the national assembly and still has great influence on environmental policy in Brazil.

Marina Silva current presidential campaign has grown enormously for the election of next October 3.

For her remarkable achievements, Marina Silva, a great example, a true champion for the Amazon and one of Brazil’s greatest Horatio Alger’s personae was honored with the Paul Donovan Kigar Life Achievement Award at the São Paulo City Assembly hall, on December 8, 2009. Other honorary recognitions include the Sophie Prize, 2009.

 
THE BRAZILIAN AMAZON AND GLOBAL WARMING
 
Brazil’s rainforest absorbs massive amounts of CO2. Rainforest conservation is crucial to limit the greenhouse effect and dramatic climate changes. Nonetheless the country has not managed to contain destruction of its forests; despite Marina Silva’s great work. The current government is now facing 480,000 forest fires as the Amazon and other natural areas burn away to a slow death, without any especial concern or effort on the part of the authorities of Brazil. The brush fires caused by draught, criminal fires by arsons and companies interested in occupying green areas are responsible for the huge volume of CO2 that Brazil sets out to the atmosphere in 2010. For these reasons, Brazil is among the four major contributors to the world greenhouse effect, climate change and global warming.
 
MALCOLM FOREST AND THE AMAZON DEFENSE
 
Born Malcolm Dale Kigar, Malcolm adopted the artistic name of Malcolm Forest in 1976 for considering the rainforests a most important constitutional element for life on our planet. An alumnus of UCLA, where he graduated from, magna cum laude, in music and cinema, Malcolm Forest has been a continuous advocate for life and nature. He was one of the activists that worked towards the creation of the São Paulo Greenbelt Biosphere Reserve and the founding of the AMAR ngo. He is the author of the Jurupari film and activist project.

Malcolm Forest and Gisele Bündchen have in common a strong faith in Marina Silva. If elected president of Brazil, in their opinion, she can further the preservation of the Amazon rainforest and other ecosystems and significantly contribute towards global cooling.
