HAPPENING NOW: EVACUATION OF THE KAYAPÓ TRIBE for a HYDROELECTRIC DAM
This picture is to go around the world.
Last week, the evacuation of the Kayapó tribe - an Indian people of the Amazon region in Brazil’s Mato Grosso has started.
The construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam is released, despite numerous protests and more than 600,000 signatures were collected.
This is ethnic cleansing and brutal environmental injustice.
