Kayapo tribe’s chief listening that an hydroelectrical plant is going to be built sweeping their homeland.
“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”
(For those of you who want to read up more about it, it’s called the Belo Monte Dam. I’m not sure if it’s actually effectively in construction yet, I’m trying to find more accurate information on the Internet! but it’s still good to know.)
