Stop Further Tragedy in Brazil. Say NO to the Disastrous Canadian Mine, the "Belo Sun."

Amazon Watch

Belo Sun No!
Stop further tragedy on the Xingu River


Belo Sun No!

This week Amazon Watch joined a global coalition of organizations to launch a campaign in defense of indigenous and traditional communities threatened by the Canadian mining company Belo Sun. The Toronto-based company plans to build Brazil's largest gold mine on the banks of the Amazon's Xingu River in the very area that is most impacted by the disastrous Belo Monte dam.


Together with our partners in Brazil, Canada, the United States, and Europe, we are standing against Belo Sun's outrageous scheme to reap massive profits from the social and environmental havoc being caused by Belo Monte.
Aiming to extract tons of gold from the Xingu's "Big Bend" region, Belo Sun is swooping in like a scavenger, promising to heap further tragedy on local communities and a declining ecosystem.

You don't suppose there's any connection between bottom-feeding Canadian mining companies such as this and the recent case where the Harper government was caught spying on the Brazilian Mining Ministry, do you? Naah! That's just crazy!
