Avaaz.org - STOP BELO MONTE: NO MEGA-DAM IN THE AMAZON
Pressure on President Dilma against the dam is rising, the President of Brazil's Environmental Agency just resigned, refusing to issue Belo Monte a construction license and challenging strong political pressure to go forward with this disastrous project. Environmental specialists, indigenous leaders and civil society, agree that Belo Monte will be a massive environmental scar in the heart of the Amazon.
Construction could start next month - let's raise the pressure on President Dilma to stop this dam! Sign the petition now, before the bulldozers move in -- it will be delivered to Brasilia.
