Update on November 07, 2012

Join the worldwide chorus calling for justice in Brazil by urging a definitive ruling on lawsuits against the Belo Monte Dam.

Brazilians and our allies around the world have launched the Belo Monte: Justice Now! campaign to appeal to Brazil's judiciary. We're calling for Brazilian judges to urgently rule upon a slew of lawsuits against the dam that are currently stalled in its courts. If the rule of law is followed, these cases could paralyze construction of the Belo Monte Dam.

The Dilma government's blatant obstruction of justice sets a dangerous precedent for the Amazon and its people, and for this reason we are asking the global community to help support our human right to democracy and due process of law. Sign the global petition http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/2486/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=11870 requesting that Brazilian judges urgently resolve the outstanding lawsuits against the Belo Monte Dam.
