Help us stop the Belo Monte Dam by signing the petition here
I have posted multiple times about what is happening to the indigenous people in Brazil. Not only are they being brutalized because of mass projects like the Belo Monte Dam, but foreign companies seeking resources like lumber have killed whole villages and displaced people in an obvious imperialist campaign for the sake of capital gain.
Here is a list of relevant articles:

- Loggers threaten Brazil Amazon residents: Amnesty
- ‘They’re killing us’: world’s most endangered tribe cries for help
- Vale plays down fears Amazon rail project will harm tribe
- Image of an Indigenous woman holding her child while trying to fend off riot police as they evict her tribe from their ancestral lands in Brazil
Sadly, it isn’t just Brazil involved in the continued exploitation of indigenous people:
please don’t ignore this.
