Free Tapajós

The Tapajós is the last free flowing river on the right bank of the Amazon, and for the sake of the planet, it’s good that it continues like that. The open wound in the Amazon by caused by the Belo Monte plant is serves to constantly remind us not to repeat such a mistake.

There is a project to surround the Tapajós on all sides  with the construction of 43 hydro electric dams on the river and its tributaries. Most of them would be in São Luiz, which dam would be built on Mundurukú territory, require flooding land considered sacred by that people and causing a massive socio-environmental disaster. Therefore, the river is our main campaign theme at the moment.

In addition to produce drops of Information (in partnership with Greenpeace Brazil), posts and cover photos to social networks and newsletters with the Tapajós theme, we are working with the opinion makers and mainstream media to take bring this very important cause to general public showing that it is not only an issue for the local residents.

In early August we had the first victory when Ibama canceled the environmental licensing of São Luiz hydro electric plant. It was an important achievement, but we must remain vigilant, as there are many interests at stake.
