The Battle for the Amazon [electronic resource]: The Xingu vs. The Belo Monte Dam

What will potentially become the world's third-largest hydroelectric dam-and a symbol of the destruction of the last remaining significant rainforest on Earth-is currently under construction in the heart of the Amazon Basin. The Belo Monte Dam complex is expected to devastate an area of more than 370,000 acres of Brazilian rainforest while resulting in the forced displacement of approximately 20,000 people and the expected migration of 100,000 more. In the face of this danger, the Xingu, the indigenous people of the region and hereditary guardians of the forest, have decided to stand their ground and fight. The Battle for the Amazon follows their struggle.
