Brazil megadam washes residents away

Posted on 23 January 2012 by Maria Rosa DOMINICI

With an estimated cost of at least $14 billion and a projected electrical capacity that would make it the third most powerful in the world, Brazil’s Belo Monte Dam is leaving a large footprint – one that looks like it will stamp out local residents in the Amazon.

Until recently, Belo Monte faced seemingly endless court cases and popular opposition, but in June, the Brazilian environmental agency IBAMA granted Norte Energia, the owner, a license to go ahead. That means an estimated 24,000 people living in the dam’s vicinity are going to be paid to leave.

Elio Alves Da Silva, a fisherman who has lived in the community for 30 years, says he will take a $12,000 buy out, despite not wanting to leave.

Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from the construction site.
