Belo Monte, Amazonas Watch: Take action, please!

Despite local, national and international opposition, the Brazilian government just issued the full installation license to begin construction on the Belo Monte Dam. The battle to defend the Xingu and its people is far from over, however! It’s now more important than ever that we take this campaign to the next level. Together with our indigenous partners and allies on the ground in Brazil, we are committed to a relentless fight stop the Belo Monte Dam. Will you continue to join us?

Please help us stop this monstrous project by sharing the petition with friends (see sample e-mail below) and joining the Cause „Stop the Monster Dam: Protect the Xingu River and its People“. Your donation today will help support indigenous leaders travel to Altamira to ensure their voices are heard and their demands are met.
