Greenpeace activists take action against the ship Clipper Hope, preventing its departure from the Amazon to the USA, where its cargo of pig iron will be used to make steel for the US car industry. Pig iron from the company that owns the cargo – Viena - is exported to a US company that claims to supply car makers including Ford, GM, Mercedes and BMW. A new Greenpeace report "Driving Destruction in the Amazon" reveals how some of the world’s biggest car companies are using steel products made from this pig iron, despite the destruction caused by its production. Thousands of remote charcoal camps in Brazil have pillaged huge areas of natural rainforest to smoulder into wood charcoal. The charcoal is burnt in blast furnaces which convert iron ore to pig iron. Greenpeace is taking action to expose serious crimes in the production of Brazilian pig iron including slave labour, deforestation and the invasion of indigenous lands.
