About Smoke Signal:

Launched in October 2020, Smoke Signal is an independent bilingual platform updated weekly. The initiative systematizes the main facts, news and speeches related to the Brazilian social and environmental crisis. Produced by a group of communicators and activists with support from the Lema agency, the platform allows for the search and “customization” of thematic timelines, by period or key actor. The site also allows researchers, journalists, activists, students and other users to download and archive selected content. Since May 2021, Smoke Signal has opened a work front in New York to articulate, monitor and cover Brazil-US relations, and disseminate content on the socioenvironmental issues in Brazil to English speaking audiences. In addition to serving as a contemporary monitor, Smoke Signal operates as a space to preserve memory and fight disinformation regarding the impacts of the Bolsonaro administration on Brazil’s socioenvironmental protection.
