This is a must-see video about the catastrophe that is the Belo Monte dam. The social-environmental costs of the project are still being ignored, with blatant disrespect for human rights. Those who will suffer the worst will be those who are still fighting with their lives to protect their homes – the indigenous communities who depend on the forest for their livelihoods. But, when it is destroyed, it will not only be those in Brazil who will feel the terrible consequences – as fellow citizens of the earth, sharing atmosphere and ecosystems, we will all feel them.
Watch the video, and share widely!
