Brazilian Version Released of the Google Earth Animation on the Belo Monte Monster Dam

Today, a Brazilian version of the powerful 3-D Google Earth video about the Belo Monte Monster Dam was released. Narrated in Portuguese by Brazilian actor Dira Paes, the video will take you on a breathtaking tour of the Xingu River Basin and show you what will happen if this monstrous Belo Monte dam is built.

This video follows an English-language version released a week earlier in the United States, narrated by Sigourney Weaver, who visited the Xingu region this summer with Avatar director James Cameron to offer support for local opposition to the dam by indigenous groups and Brazilian civil society.
