This action is irreversible and means the death sentence for ALL the tribes living at the shores of the river because the barrage will flood more or less 400 000 hectares of the forest. More than 40 000 natives will have to find other living surroundings where they will be able to survive. The destruction of the natural habitat, the deforestation and the disappearance of several species of plants and animals will be a fait accompli. This does not just effect Brazil, it affects us all.
President of Brazil Mrs. Dilma, the President of Brazil
