WE DEMAND THE PRESERVATION OF THE IRREPLACEABLE AMAZON CAVES !!

 IBAMA ~ Murilo Ferreira ~ President Dilma Rousseff ~ reverse your decision !!

Vale will destroy thousands of caves in Amazon

June 28, 2012 · by Ronaldo c. Augusto · in Complaint. ·

Historical records of 10 thousand years of human occupation in the Amazon will be destroyed indiscriminately. The caves will be demolished without having even been searched. Archaeologists hired by the caves Valley itself qualified as “maximum relevance” and desautorizaram the entry of excavators.

Contrary to the opinions of archeologists, cavers and Chico Mendes biodiversity conservation Institute (ICMBio), the federal Government gave preliminary license for an investment of 20 billion dollars in iron mining, in the South of the Serra de Carajás, in the heart of the Amazon.

Thousands of caves are destroyed. There is no way to preserve them, because the extraction of the ore is made from the demolition of the ground. Nothing will be standing, including the caves, which guard relics that date back to 10 thousand years ago.

POWER OF PERSUASION

Research done in recent years by speleologists and archaeologists, hired by the Valley, recommended the preservation of sites, considered by them as “maximum relevance”.

Technical opinion of ICMBio, recommending the preservation of the site, even been considered by the federal Government, which gave the prior environmental license through the Ibama.

The negotiation with the high-ranking Government was made by the President of Vale, Murilo Ferreira. After the issue of prior environmental license, Ferreira visited President Dilma Rousseff and made an exhibition about mining’s plans for the region. The meeting took place on Wednesday 27, at the Presidential Palace.

Historical records of 10 thousand years of human occupation in the Amazon will be destroyed indiscriminately.

Between the preservation of historical heritage and the sum of 20 billion dollars to double production in Serra dos Carajás, we are left with the second option.

The Government even sent an expedition to try to know the size of the prejudice that the country will have with the destruction of caves.

Not surveyed, did not take into account the opinion of ICMBio, did not listen to archaeologists and cavers hired by the mining itself.

PRODUCTION CHAIN

In their official documents that came to public, It omitted the existence of the caves. Reported only that the environmental impact will be minimal, because the ore will leave the region on treadmills with 30 kilometres long, to areas without environmental constraints.

The Vale has serious problems in the production chain. The best known is the supply, with iron ore, steel mills involved with environmental devastation and slave labor, as several studies have shown that, over the past few years.

Less than 12:0 am after informing that your opinion was contrary to prior environmental license, ICMBio relented. On the afternoon of Thursday 28, Ibama issued a statement in which he claimed to have favourable opinion issued by ICMBio.

Everything was thus solved.

Vale now works for the definitive environmental license and put mine in operation in 2016.

It is the largest iron mining project in progress in the world. Will increase by 82% in production, which will pass system called North of present-day 109 to 200 million tons of iron ore.

EXIGIMOS A PRESERVAÇÃO DAS CAVERNAS AMAZON INSUBSTITUÍVEL!!!! IBAMA ~ Murilo Ferreira ~ Presidente Dilma Rousseff ~ reverter sua decisão!!!! Vale irá destruir milhares de cavernas na Amazônia 28 De junho de 2012 · c Ronaldo Augusto · na denúncia. · Registros históricos de 10 mil anos de ocupação humana na Amazônia serão destruídos indiscriminadamente. As cavernas serão demolidas sem mesmo ter sido pesquisado. Arqueólogos contratados por cavernas vale-se qualificado como desautorizaram e "máxima relevância" a entrada de escavadeiras. Ao contrário de opiniões de arqueólogos, espeleólogos e Chico Mendes a conservação da biodiversidade (ICMBio) do Instituto, o governo federal deu licença prévia para um investimento de 20 bilhões de dólares em mineração de ferro, no sul da Serra de Carajás, no coração da Amazônia. Milhares de cavernas são destruídos. Não há nenhuma maneira de preservá-los, porque a extração do minério é feita a partir da demolição da terra. Nada vai estar de pé, incluindo cavernas, que guardam relíquias que datam de há 10 mil anos. PODER DE PERSUASÃO Pesquisa feita nos últimos anos por espeleólogos e arqueólogos, contratados pela Vale, recomendado a preservação dos sítios, consideradas por eles como "máxima relevância". Parecer técnico do ICMBio, recomendando a preservação do local, ainda foi considerado pelo governo federal, que deu a licença ambiental prévia através do Ibama. A negociação com o governo de alto escalão foi feita pelo Presidente da Vale, Murilo Ferreira. Após a emissão da licença ambiental prévia, Ferreira visitou a Presidente Dilma Rousseff e fez uma exposição sobre os planos da mineração para a região. A reunião ocorreu na quarta-feira 27, no palácio presidencial. Registros históricos de 10 mil anos de ocupação humana na Amazônia serão destruídos indiscriminadamente. Entre a preservação do patrimônio histórico e a soma de 20 bilhões de dólares para a produção individual na Serra dos Carajás, ficamos com a segunda opção. O governo ainda enviou uma expedição para tentar saber o tamanho do prejuízo que o país terá com a destruição de cavernas. Não pesquisados, não teve em conta o parecer do ICMBio, não ouvir os arqueólogos e espeleólogos contratados pela mineradora em si. CADEIA DE PRODUÇÃO Em seus documentos oficiais que vieram a público, omitido a existência das cavernas. Informou apenas que o impacto ambiental seja mínimo, pois o minério vai deixar a região em esteiras com 30 quilômetros de comprimento, para áreas sem restrições ambientais. O Vale tem sérios problemas na cadeia de produção. O mais conhecido é o fornecimento, com moinhos de minério, aço ferro envolvidos com a devastação ambiental e trabalho escravo, como vários estudos têm demonstrado que, ao longo dos últimos anos. Menos do que 12:0 horas depois informando que seu parecer foi contrário à licença ambiental prévia, ICMBio cedeu. Na tarde de quinta-feira 28, o Ibama emitiu uma declaração em que ele alegou ter parecer favorável emitido pelo ICMBio. Assim, tudo foi resolvido. Vale agora trabalha para o definitivo ambiental licença e colocar minas em operação em 2016. É o maior projeto de mineração de ferro em curso no mundo. Aumentará em 82% na produção, que vai passar o sistema chamado norte atuais de 109 para 200 milhões de toneladas de minério de ferro.
