Bravo! This may have been a stunt, but has brought this Dam to the forefront. Noted with thanks Cal.
"We, the people who live along the banks of the Xingu, who subsist from the river, who drink from the river, and who are already suffering from of the most irresponsible projects in the history of Brazil are demanding: Stop Belo Monte."

I'd be scared of the local people (for good reason) if the dam people know what's good for them. Environmental atrocities like this cannot be allowed to continue.
