“Veta Dilma” or “Dilma Veto,” aimed at Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff during a protest against the approval of the new Brazilian forest code. The new bill results into:

  • Eases rules on amount of forest farmers must preserve.
  • Millions of hectares to be reforested under new rules.
  • Farm lobby defeats Rousseff gov’t, which opposed final bill.
  • Rousseff may veto the bill, could spark fight with Congress.

Nevertheless Reuters reports:

Though the bill will require millions of hectares of already cleared land to be replanted, environmentalists say it makes it too easy for farmers, responsible for much of the deforestation of the Amazon and other swaths of environmentally sensitive land in recent decades, to comply with regulations that stipulate how much forest they must preserve.
