Stop the Belo Monte Damn in Brazil.

Brazil is pushing forward with plans to build a damn that will be devastating to the Amazon & it’s people.  In order to feed the powerhouse of the Belo Monte dam complex, up to 80% of the Xingu River will be diverted from its original course, causing a permanent drought on the river’s “Big Bend.” Belo Monte’s two reservoirs and canals will flood a total of area larger than the city of Chicago of standing rain forest. The flooding will also force more than 20,000 people from their homes.  See how you can join the fight to stop this potential eco – disaster.
