Native Brazilians from the Amazon basin demonstrate against the construction of the planned Belo Monte hydroelectric dam, in Brasilia February 8, 2011. Proposed to be built along the Xingu River in the state of Para, the dam would be the world’s third largest at planned capacity, though environmentalists and native Brazilians have raised concerns that the project may displace indigenous tribes and damage the environment. The sign reads, “No Belo Monte dam on the Xingu.” REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino (BRAZIL – Tags: ENVIRONMENT ENERGY CIVIL UNREST BUSINESS)
