Construction site of the Belo Monte Dam and hydropower project, near Altamira. The Belo Monte Dam will be the third largest in the world, submerging 400,000 hectares and displacing 20,000 people. For 20 years indigenous groups, rural communities and environmentalists have fought against its construction. President Dilma authorized the building after a highly controversial and disrespectful licensing process.04/10/2012
