在发展的名义，巴西政府正在危及生存的社区. 他们并没有使大坝将在该地区的生物多样性的影响研究。大坝将导致灭绝的珍稀鱼类，水生动物，热带雨林。大坝将造成对环境的破坏是不可逆的. 至少有10万人被迫流离失所的数以千计的土著人民，当地社区的迁移，导致社会混乱。
” Beds of large infrastructure projects have become the scene of a bitter dispute between unions linked to different unions. They fight for the representation of workers, and fall for the handsome collection of union dues (and care), figures that can reach millions. To do this, try to lure workers with proposals unrealistic and often end up cluttering the desktop as an exchange of accusations between the union members themselves.
The dispute, which may affect the schedule of works, is spread over all major enterprises of the country began in Hydroelectric Jirau and San Antonio, in Rondonia, passed by Suape Industrial Complex, involving the Abreu Lima refinery and petrochemical complex in Pernambuco; reached Thermoelectric Pecém, Ceará, and recently landed on the plant of Belo Monte, in Pará state.

The #BeloMonteDam is a #CrimeAgainstPresentandFutureGenerations. In the name of development, the Brazilian Government is endangering the survival of communities & indigenous peoples. They have failed to make a study of the impact the dam will have on biodiversity in the region. The dam will result in the extinction of rare fish species, the aquatic fauna, and the rainforest. The damage the dam will cause to the environment is irreversible & nefarious. The migration of at least a 100,000 people and the forced displacement of thousands of indigenous people, local communities, is resulting in social chaos… http://tl.gd/ggdppl · Reply

The Photo on the left shows how much the building has progressed in the past week. There is absolute urgency to stop them. Belo Monte will be greater than the Panama Canal, flooding at least 989,000 acres of forest, forcing out 40,000 indigenous and local populations, and destroying precious habitat for many…
Has the Brazilian government the right to destroy our last major rain forest ? Don’t they think what devastating effect this has on our ecology and world climate ? Join the Millions who protest against President Dilma s decision to destroy the Amazon completely
Warum ich diesen Artikel verfasse ? Weil ich den Regenwald kenne und weil es um das Ueberleben dieses einzigartigen Naturgebildes geht. Kein Mensch scheint an die Folgen dieses Projekts zu denken. 400 000 Hektar Primaerwald, seit Millionen Jahren praesent – wird ausgerottet. 40 000 Menschen mag nicht nach viel klingen, aber diesen Menschen gehoert der Urwald. Nicht der Regierung Brasiliens. Zuerst dies ….
Nun dies ? Niemand ist an dem Schicksal derer interessiert, jeder denkt nur daran die Tasche zu fuellen. Wir sind nicht mehr faehig klar zu denken.
Nach dem dieser Bau fertig ist, werden weitere folgen. Der Amazonas ist unser Hauptproduzent fuer Sauerstoff. Wir zerstoeren uns selbst, langsam, unaufhaltbar wie es scheint. Hinter uns die Sintflut. Die naechsten Generationen muessen mit den Problemen fertig werden die wir in die Wiege stellten.
Prasidentin Dilma ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_Brazil ) gibt ihre Zusage fuer den Bau des Wasserkraftwerks . Belo Monte wird groesser als der Panama Kanal, und wird mindestens 989 000 acres (400 000 hektar ) Wald ueberfluten (!!!!!), 40000 Indianer und lokale Bevoelkerung versetzen, wertvolles Habitat fuer viele Tierarten und Pflanzen zerstoeren… Was soll man dem hinzufuegen ??

Brazil Past : Dilma Roussef pictures
August 07, 2012, Brazil ; The crimes of the dictatorship that lasted from 1964 to 1985 was finally considered by the court. One of the victims, President Dilma Rousseff.
The same person who had fought the tyrants, who had been tortured, and now we wonder if his fight against the military dictatorship was for the freedom of his country and his people, or to establish her own power.
