The Movement of People Affected by Dams holds the 2nd Meeting of The Affected People in Amazon Rainforest

The meeting in Belém precedes the 10th edition of Fospa and 300 affected people from the Amazon will attend it

This week, affected people from the multiple regions of the Amazon Rainforest will meet in the capital of resistance: the Movement of People Affected by Dams (MAB) will hold the II Meeting of the Affected people from Amazon Rainforest, in Belém do Pará.

The activity will take place on the 27th and 28th of July on the campus of the Federal University of Pará (UFPA) and is part of the program linked to the X Pan Amazon Social Forum (FOSPA). With the lemma “Rooting resistance in defense of life and sovereignty”, the meeting will bring together hundreds of affected people from all states of the Brazilian Amazon and representatives of the PanAmazônia. It will also count on the presence of allied organizations to discuss forms of resistance and defense of the forest and its peoples.

“More than ever, in the face of the climate emergency, we affirm the importance of the forest for the future of our Common House. While capital devastates and presents false solutions, it is up to peoples and popular organizations to present a project to defend life for the region”, says Francisco Kelvim, from the MAB`s national coordination. 

It will be present at the meeting, about 300 leaders affected by dams and other different contexts, such as waterway projects, mining, and deforestation in the nine states of the Amazon Rainforest.
