The  chief Raoni cries when he learns that brazilian president Dilma  released the beginning of construction of the hydroelectric plant of  Belo Monte, even after tens of thousands of letters and emails addressed  to her and which were ignored as the more than 600 000 signatures. That  is, the death sentence of the peoples of Great Bend of the Xingu river  is enacted. Belo Monte will inundate at least 400,000 hectares of  forest, an area bigger than the Panama Canal, thus expelling 40,000  indigenous and local populations and destroying habitat valuable for  many species - all to produce electricity at a high social, economic and  environmental cost, which could easily be generated with greater  investments in energy efficiency.
It was brought to my attention that there is a petition we all can sign to help support these indigenous people and the Amazon. Please take a second to check it out below or comparable petitions that are available. Thank you.
