success for the Xingu!

August 25, 2012

Victory for now, for the Indigenous peoples of the Xingu River, as court orders a halt to dam construction. Great to have good news to follow up my earlier post.

News from Amazon WatchAl Jaz, the Guardian, Huff Post. Or click on the photo in my last entry to link to the Huffington Post article.
