The Brazilian Amazon, home to 60 percent of the world’s largest forest and 20 percent of the Earth’s oxygen, remains threatened by the rapid development of the country. The area is currently populated by over 20 million people and is challenged by deforestation, agriculture, mining, a governmental dam-building spree, illegal land speculation including the occupation of forest reserves and indigenous land and other issues...
YOU can be the world wide voice for the people of the Amazon, for the Animals of the Amazon and for the world itself, your voice is needed.
Why should people sign this petition and back us in this fight ?... I think the answer is easy. The dam will cause a mass flooding of the already endangered Amazon Rainforest, in doing this it will destroy thousands of natives homes, innocent people will die, lose their land, their rights and way of life, animals will lose their homes and many will die and a massive section of what many including myself call the lungs of the world will be destroyed forever and for what ?... Money, Power, Greed, it seems that is all that man cares about and needs, more money, more control and will slaughter for greed, I ask you all to Sign this petition and send it to everyone you know, mail it, post it, tweet it and push it all over... Some facts for you all...

The company will tell you its in the name of progress and that its for the people, the facts are its not for the people most of the pwer generated is for more mining, for exports and 30% to share holders. so the people get nothing, greed, power and control for the money men, destruction death and loss for the people, animals and the planet, is it worth it ?... NO

The EIA report carried out on Belo Monte was in fact funded and carried out by the company responsible for Belo Monte itself, Eletrobras/Eletronorte, part of the Norte Energia consortium. It was done with Andrade Gutierrez, Odebrecht, Camargo Corręa, contracted out to Leme Engenharia, which is part of the GDF Suez, which operates 15 hydroelectric plants in the Amazon, the Jirau on the Madeira among them. In short, the EIA report has no credibility...

Belo Monte will destroy vast areas of pristine Amazon rainforest and biodiversity, causing the extinction of many rare species of animals and plants... I ask you all to fight, to take a stand, post it everywhere, share, push and fight the good fight. With respect always, James Howie.
C.O.P.E -- Carers Of Planet Earth...

Thank you for signing the petition "President: Dilma Rousseff, Brazilian Embassy London. UN-EP. EEA: Demand A Stop To The Belo Monte Dam. "
James thank you for your petition on Change.org which I signed & posted to Twitter. Many petitions have landed on her desk-i.e. President Rousseff - hopefully she will get the 'message' sooner than later. Time for her to stand up and say STOP to the Belo Monte Dam Project is NOW!
Thanks also to Beverley for posting and to Ben O. for including Survival International: Write a letter for peoples affected by the Belo Monte dam and International Rivers; Belo Monte dam, facts.

When will the greed stop ?. It always some big corporation trying to dazzle everyone with facts that can't be substantiated. They say it is for the good of the people, but the good is only for the hip pocket of a few.. the animals that will diappear if this projects goes ahead will be to numerous to count. Animals that are near extinction now, will be lost forever. Lost, because they live & survive in the areas that will no longer be there, if this dam go ahead. People who make their home there will be misplaced, some of them will also lose their lives in the name of GREED not PROGRESS. Something that must not be allowed to happen.
