Stop the Belo Monte Dam!

The Brazilian government has just approved a massive dam project that will displace 40,000 Indigenous and other residents of Brazil, and flood over 120,000 acres of rainforest and local communities.
Chief Raoni of the Xingu cries when he learns that Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff approved  the beginning of construction of the hydroelectric plant of Belo Monte.

Even if it is too late, the Brazilian government needs to know the rest of the world is watching. Sign a petition to be delivered to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff here.
