Rise of Brazil's ranching queen sparks green protests

Senator Katia Abreu speaks during the inauguration ceremony of the new board of the Brazilian Confederation of Agriculture and Livestock (CNA) in Brasilia on December 15, 2014Brasília (AFP) – Before her husband died, Katia Abreu was a housewife who didn’t know a cow from a bull. The post is a high-profile job in Brazil, the world’s seventh-largest economy and an agricultural powerhouse. Abreu, the head of powerful industry group the Agriculture and Livestock Confederation of Brazil (CNA), won environmental group Greenpeace’s “Golden Chainsaw” award in 2010 for her “contributions” to destroying the Amazon. Indigenous communities and Brazil’s landless workers movement have accused her of trying to expand commercial farming at the expense of the environment.
