Wednesday, August 8, 2012

In July, 2012, the United Nations ran a Web TV story on the Belo Monte Dam, including interviews with Juruna tribal leader Sheyla Juruna, and Arara tribal leader José Carlos Arara.  The video utilizes our Google Earth video on Belo Monte, entitled "Defending the Rivers of the Amazon," developed in 2010.  Watch the story above, to hear Sheyla describe the impacts of the dam, on a visit to the Xingu River.
