Angry Brazilian Letter

Extracts from this document...


Cramlington Learning village Highburn Northumberland NE23 6BN Dear Mr Angry Brazilian, I am writing in response to your letter that I received last week about the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. We are sorry if any offence was taken due to this article this article, our intention was not to offend any readers but to raise the awareness about the deforestation that occurs in the Amazon, and to inform the readers of the matter.
