Read the letter prepared by affected people in the Amazon Rainforest gathered at the 2nd meeting in Belém (PA)
In a meeting organized by MAB in Belém (PA), activists from the Movement and from different popular organizations defended the approval of a bill that creates a legal framework for the rights of affected people
My work with MAB and conversations with people affected by dams around the world made me want to investigate the following questions: what is the state of the dams in my own country, the United States, in 2020? Do we have concerns about their safety? Could there be a dam break here? Can what happened in Brumadinho happen here? Who controls these dams, and who “benefits” from the energy?
