Environmentalists take part in a protest against the adoption of the new Forest Code at Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo May 5, 2012. Brazil's Congress voted on April 25 to ease rules mandating the amount of forest farmers must keep on their land, delivering a long-sought victory to the country's powerful agriculture lobby despite opposition from environmentalists. The bill must still be approved by Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff. The banner reads "Dilma, saves the forests". REUTERS/Nacho Doce (BRAZIL - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS ENVIRONMENT)
