I normally don’t blog about this, but I really feel concerned about it. This is not a sponsored blog post, I decided to blog about this when I saw a post from a Facebook User: Kevin and was shared by my cousin so it reached my account. I really feel alarmed and decided to get more petitions from them. Here is the content of the post.
I hope that this image travels the world . . .
“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Natives will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.” What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences . . . But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”. Not only is this a picture of one man crying; It symbolizes the grief that has been forced upon an entire people. Sign the AVAAZ Petition to stop the dam here: http://www.avaaz.org/en/
