ALL of us should be outraged at this!

If you were in their place, how would you feel?  Think it can’t happen to you?  Wouldn’t you want someone to help you?  What can you do?  Send emails to the U.N.?  To the Brazilian government?  Can you raise some public awareness in an effort to stop this?  How about just forwarding this post to your friends?

be flooded, an area that is larger than the Panama Canal. 40,000 
people from indigenous and local communities ... the habitat of 
many animal and plant species will be destroyed.

 All in order for electricity production to be made easier, more 
efficient and profitable, produced primarily by investors. I know 
this does not happen to our country .... Some will say: What is 
Brazil? As if we don't have our own problems ...But I am of this 
opinion! The inherent despair in this image, that they face ... 
got me thinking ...: "The history of the Kayapo tribe must go 
through the world and perhaps cause us to rethink. Far from the 
relentless march of capitalist society ... to responsible ..."
