Brazil: From forest to farmland - Cattle illegally grazed in Brazil’s Amazon found in Jbs’s supply chain
In Brazil’s Amazon, illegal land seizures, deforestation and fires often form part of the process of converting rainforest into pasture. In this report, Amnesty International documents recent land seizures for illegal commercial cattle ranching in protected areas in Brazil’s Amazon and its adverse human rights impacts. It finds that land seizures are often accompanied by threats, intimidation and violence against those living on and seeking to defend their territories. The report also finds that cattle illegally grazed in protected areas have entered the supply chain of JBS, the largest producer of beef in the world.
