Petition to the Brazilian government to stop the construction of the Belo Monte Monster Damn

Standard

Dear Friends,

I just signed a petition to the Brazilian government to stop the construction of the Belo Monte Monster Dam complex in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. If built, it will be the third largest dam in the world. It will flood 668 km2 of Amazon rainforest, causing irreversible harm, including the displacement of more than 20,000 people who stand to lose everything – their homes, their livelihood, and the river that sustains them. Additionally, the dam will exacerbate global climate change.

Join me and sign the petition to stop the Belo Monte Monster Dam and help defend the rainforest and its people!

The Brazilian government has an opportunity to demonstrate global leadership in protecting the Amazon, its people and the global climate instead of continuing on a path of dirty and destructive development. Please join me in the battle to stop the Belo Monte Monster Dam and defend a real Pandora on Earth.

Add your voice and sign the petition!

Thank You!

Chief Raoni crying when he learned that the President of Brazil approved the Belo Monte dam project on the Xingu indigenous lands. Belo Monte will be bigger than the Panama Canal, flooding acres of rainforest & indigenous lands. 20,000 indigenous and local people will be forced off their native lands (as well as millions of unknown species & plants) In the name of “progress”.

    • I signed the petition. I found out through Crochet with Raymond as I get email updates from her, and I really felt led to go and sign this petition. I am so weary of the destruction of our world. I hope I can help just a little. Thanks for posting this. I also posted on my Facebook page. Now, I’m going to go explore your website. I am a fellow crochet addict. And proud of it!!

    • Have signed the petition which I learned about through Crochet with Raymond as I subscribe to e-mail updates from her.
      I’m so sick of big companies raping the earth just to make another $$ so if adding my name helps stop them in their tracks then my name is on it!
