The impact of the Belo Monte ‘Emergency Plan’


Drawn up without any proper consultation, or local participation, the so-called Emergency Plan was used by the developers to keep Indian people well away from the construction site. They set up offices in Altamira to dole out payments in kind, inducing the Indians to travel frequently to the city and alienating them from their traditional home environment.
