[Action Alert] • 
The Belo Monte Dam project aims to destroy a significant piece of the Amazon rain forest, and displace the Xingu tribal community. The dam is being constructed so that the river bed can be mined for gold using gigantic floating platforms that will drill and suck the riverbed of all gold, destroying the ecosystem in the process. 

Sign this petition to help both the indigenous Xingu tribe, and the Amazon.
