HAPPENING NOW: EVACUATION OF THE KAYAPÓ TRIBE for a HYDROELECTRIC DAM
This picture is to go around the world.
Last week, the evacuation of the Kayapó tribe - an Indian people of the Amazon region in Brazil’s Mato Grosso has started.
The construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam is released, despite numerous protests and more than 600,000 signatures were collected.
This is ethnic cleansing and brutal environmental injustice. RESPECT EXISTENCE OR EXPECT RESISTANCE!
FUCK. I was really hoping this wouldn’t fucking happen ):
The fact that this sort of thing can and does happen makes me sick to my stomach and gives the hairs on my neck cause to stand on end. The fact that a government power has put their wants before another peoples’ needs is disgusting, terrifying, and abhorrent.
I know that this is just an image and a story on the internet, but education and understanding are the keys to making change in the world. Thus, the more people who know about this situation, the better.
