    They are hardly been heard..sadly they dont have BBC in Brasil I believe..all they get there is lies of Lula/Dilma and the huge sell out behind this destructive project. To take away such a big part of the Amazon jungle is just plain crazy and can never benifit our future

    I absolute hate the fact that left wing bolivarian propoganda brainwashes americans and europeans to believe that the left wing latin governments are so concerned about the environment, ecology and native rights cause honestly it's just used as a weapon to attack economic freedom and western businesses when ALBA's economic interests are just as environmentally degrading, and of cause an assault on human rights, free speech and world peace (i.e peace in Colombia).

    They'll be fine. Just adapt to modernity and survive.

    This is ridiculous! As if they haven't taken enough resources from native people… they will be judged for what they do to the innocent…. smh the govt are the true savages.

    The native Bornean tribes are facing the same problem but by different cause. In Borneo the deforestation caused by palm oil plantation projects in Malaysian and Indonesian parts of Borneo have destructed the indigenous people.

    "We want things to stay the way God left them for us". Well, I'm sorry, but that's not how the world works anymore.

    yeah well. Fight against hydropower! More Coal plants, more nuclear! Ruin this planet faster!
    Hydropower is still the safest and ecologically greenest reliable energy we have.
