Media Roundtable: The Brexit Crisis & The Root Causes of the Amazon Fires
On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the G7 Summit in France and the political crisis in England following Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament to push his Brexit Plan.
We’ll also discuss the ongoing devastating fires in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest. So far this year, Brazil has reported 83,000 fires, with many of them set in deforested areas by loggers and ranchers to clear land for cattle.
