Last days

Children play in front of the construction site of the Belo Monte Dam project at Santo Antonio, a community that would be expropriated for the construction of the Belo Monte Dam, a controversial hydropower plant that is being built at the Xingu River, one of the largest rivers in the Amazon basin. The dam will be the third largest in the world, submerging 400,000 hectares and displacing 20,000 people. REUTERS / Lunae Parracho
