More than 1.2 million people around the world — who stood with the Munduruku Indigenous People to say no to the SLT Dam and pressure multinational companies like Siemens to distance themselves from the project.

A 20x30 meters banner is to be opened near the Tapajós river, protesting against the construction of dams in the region. Warriors from other villages and Greenpeace activists gather in the village. A aldeia Sawré Muybu recebe os preparativos para a ação do dia 18/03/2016, em que um banner de 20x30 metros deve ser aberto próximo ao Rio Tapajós, em protesto à construção de hidrelétricas na região.

Now that the mega dam’s license has been cancelled, the Brazilian Ministry of Justice must recognize its obligation and move swiftly to officially demarcate the Sawré Muybu territory.
