On August 26, the Brazilian government signed the concession to build the Belo Monte Dam. What can one do, when the government is the one who destroy they environment for billions of animals, fishes, birds and ruin peoples lives? Well, "someone" did this video below to inform others about the plans.
About: International Rivers has partnered with Amazon Watch and actors Sigourney Weaver and Dira Paes to produce a new Google Earth tour and video called “Defending the Rivers of the Amazon.” In an English-language version available now, and a Portuguese-language version to be released the week of September 6th, the actors take us on a journey through the Xingu Basin to reveal what would be lost if the Belo Monte Dam were built. The tour illustrates the impacts of diverting the mighty Xingu River, such as reducing access to water along a 100-km stretch called the "Big Bend," where two indigenous tribes have lived for generations. It animates the flooding associated with the dam, impacts on the region’s spectacular biodiversity, and maps over 60 Brazilian dams that form a part of the more than 140 large dams planned for the entire Amazon Basin in the future.
