THE SAMAÚMA IS STILL CALLING
Four years ago -- during more ecologically sensitive times -- the Brazilian Government, the NGOs and the World Bank all cooperated to produce this magnificent video. That was before Dilma Rousseff and her developmentalist comrades in mining, energy and agribusiness took control and decided to ramrod the Belo Monte Monster Dam and the weakening of Brazil's Forest Code. As the political mood changed and the world looked on aghast, the Call of the Samaúma has become even more urgent. Please join the beat and pass it on.
Amazon Watch and Comitê Brasil are excellent sites to watch for latest developments.
