Global Campaign: Save the Heart of the Amazon

Join 'Global Days of Action' for the Amazon

The heart of the Amazon is under threat, as the big international company, Siemens, stands to profit by building a massive mega-dam around the Tapajós river. If this happens, the Munduruku Indigenous people would be forced to abandon their traditional home and the forest would be destroyed by the 7.6 km long dam and a reservoir the size of New York City. To push back on the mega-dam project, people across the globe stand together with a ‘Global Days of Action’ (July 14 - 20).
