In December 2020, Brazil had an auction, and Amazon lands were sold to the fossil fuel industry. 350 were there protesting in front of the event with Cacique Ninawa Huni Kui, spiritual leader and chief of the Huni Kuin people in Pan Amazonia, and Alexandre Anderson, National leader of the artisanal fishermen community in Brazil, who also has been affected by the industry.

Eneva, a Brazillian company that has almost 22% of its business controlled by an investment bank called BTG Pactual, bid for the drilling blocks in the Amazon. BTG Pactual has a strong appeal for ESG investments (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance), but being part of Eneva, they are actually involved in many fossil fuel projects including ones in Pantanal and now Amazon – important biomes in Latin America.
