Then we have the woman, who represents the human being, in a bid to continue fighting so that women have the same rights and freedoms as men, which is something that we haven't achieved yet.

    Sao Paulo, Oct 16 (EFE) .- Brazilian artist Mundano gives life to more than 200 kilos of ash collected in the Amazon which were a result of the recent fires in Brazil with a huge mural in Sao Paulo, where he seeks to denounce the environmental "dismantling" that is taking place in his country.(Camera: WALLACE CARVALHO / SEBASTIAO MOREIRA) SHOT LIST: BRAZILIAN ARTIST MUNDANO'S MURAL IN SAO PAULO, BRAZIL.SOUND BITES: ARTIST MUNDANO (IN PORTUGUESE):1. (I want) to incite people to reflect on what future they want. because climate change is already a reality, we already see its impact all over the world. 2. I had the idea to reflect on 'café labrador', which is an iconic work by Portinari, because she is a pioneer in showing inequality and the impact of agribuisiness. 3. When the forest is reduced to ashed, we too become ashes. 4. Then I thought that (the gray) would be more dramatic, more cisceral and more shocking, and that is the goal of the mural.5. I think we are witnesses of the greatest socioenvironmental settlement in our history under the Bolsonaro government and we cannot keep quiet.
