In Defense of Life and the Xingu River

Sunday, June 3, 2007
We wish to express our concern about the possible construction of a complex of hydroelectric dams on the Xingu River. If these large dams are constructed on the Volta Grande (Big Bend) of the Xingu River they will affect indigenous peoples, agricultural communities, the forest and its biodiversity, and would harm life in the Xingu basin. We are totally opposed to Belo Monte [one of the large dams] because the Xingu River is our life. The death of the river would threaten our lives, our future, our people, and our children and grandchildren. Any interference with the Xingu will cause the extinc

On the occasion of World Water Day, the Save the Mekong Coalition, together with civil society and community partners from Thailand, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Vietnam, make this statement to express our concern for the Mekong River and the communities our river supports.
