Xingu River Brazil.

 

My Dear Friend Jussara from Brazil sent me these words

I hope that you will read why flooding this vast area of over 400,000 acres will have such an impact on these Indigenous peoples lives not to mention the untold wildlife.

The words below are from my friend.  

I was very happy with your important support for the cause
Xingu and with your wonderful post on WordPress .

Your act  makes a big difference in this fight:))
My dear, I send here a picture of the region
Xingu River, where the government wants to build the hydroelectric,
so you see the size of the territory that will be destroyed…
This is an indigenous territory, live here more than 15 groups
Ethnic Indigenous ( thousands of indigenous people) and also
there are traditional populations (non-indigenous groups).
I also sent photos of the Kayapo ethnic group, which will be
one of the hardest hit.

Xingu River

These ethnic groups along the river are forest people,

Kayapo TribeKayapo Tribe 1

they do not know life in cities.
When constructing the dam, these people will be uprooted,
the forest will be flooded forever…
thus, the entire forest and local wildlife, including numerous types
mammals, birds, fish, insects that exist only there, all
will be destroyed.

Kuikuro Tribe

The remaining trees in the surrounding areas will
their roots rotted by the change of water level and also
die. Indigenous peoples shall be taken to prefabricated houses,
lose the land where they live and live their ancestors, finally lose
everything and will not survive.
 
I have high hopes that the pressure from international groups
can make the government abandon the project, this is our hope …
Thank you for your solidarity, Dreamwalker,

 You Too can make a difference..
