A Message from Pandora, STOP! the Destruction

 

A dear friend of mine who lives in Brazil, sent me an appeal today, to sign a petition to stop the Belo Monte Dam project from going ahead later this month.. Here are her Words..

“Stop Belo Monte Dam!

The Brazilian government approved the environmental license for the controversial Belo Monte Dam in the Amazon. The dam, slated to be the world’s third largest hydroelectric project, would devastate an extensive area of the Amazon rainforest, and threaten the survival of indigenous and traditional peoples. Construction could begin this year.

 The decision has caused a national and international outcry. It’s time for urgent action! The government has just given a license to start cutting down trees and clearing the construction site for the Belo Monte hydropower project. The decision has already triggered strong reactions, and the Federal Public Ministry in Pará has publicly stated that the license is illegal, and cannot be issued without prior compliance with environmental requirements.

But, President Dilma is turning a deaf ear. Only a massive wave of protest from citizens across the country could persuade her to review the decision. We’ve done it before! If enough of us call, we could protect our precious environment and get her to immediately revoke the illegal license. And, if we don’t act now, the forest will be cleared this month”

 

I was shocked to learn of this project whereby 40,000 indigenous people and local people will be displaced and lose their homes and habitat, not to mention the thousands of Species of Animals, Wildlife and unique species of animals and insects.

The Dam will flood 400,000 acres of Rainforests and the project is Bigger than that of the Panama Canal. Please watch the video and visit the links listed here.. and add you vote …
Where do we stop in destroying our world.. It has taken hundreds of years for these trees which give us our Oxygen to breath.. There are I am sure alternatives to this 
hydroelectric Belo Monte, which will destroy the entire region of the Xingu river,in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

    Dearest Dreamwalker, I saw the video and wonder if this dam would be like the Three Gorges Dam in China, the largest dam in the world in which displaced many people, but provided flood relief which saved lives and agriculture, and power for many, many millions of people. You mentioned possible alternatives for the 5th largest country in the world that is a deloping nation and is starved for electricity to power their cities and plants. I wonder what they might be? I’m not pro or con on this matter, though I surely feel for displaced peoples and the lost of habitat..such a dillemma for the people of the world.

    Thank you Dreamwalker for sharing this. We need to be aware, at least, so we can think about what we are doing, and what we aren’t doing in the world.

    Blessings and Peace,
    Michelle.

    PS Also thank you very much for the links and videos.

    Thanks Sue , I signed the petition and hope it has a major effect on what may become a great travesty of nature in our times , makes me think of the changes that occurred in Papua New Guinea that affected those ancient peoples lives and culture ,
