The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant

The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). I have more respect for a Warrior that protects life—for us, for our children and grandchildren and future generations –than for a false civilization and their interests!
While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, …the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, ‘The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world).
It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact. ‘
What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …
The Kayapos (Portuguese: Kayapó, also spelled Caiapó or Kaiapó, comes from neighboring peoples and means “those who look like monkeys”) are indigenous peoples in Brazil, from the plain lands of the Mato Grosso and Pará in Brazil, south of the Amazon Basin and along Rio Xingu and its tributaries. They speak the Kayapo language, which belongs to the Jê language family.
In 2003 their population was 7,096, increased to 8,638 in 2010.

But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”. posted by Gonzalo Cesaron FaceBook
