Greenpeace Brazil activists have joined forces with Munduruku Indigenous leaders to protest the Brazilian government's plans to build a mega dam on the Tapajós river, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest in the Pará state. Using traditional canoes, activists have joined the Munduruku on a sacred part of the Tapajós River to send a clear message to the world: "Damn the dam. Keep the Tapajós river alive". Together, they unfurled a 20X30 meter banner on the river demanding an end to the São Luiz do Tapajós dam. The protest celebrates the International Day of Forest, on March 21st.
Sawré Muybu village serves as headquarters for the action preparations. Warriors from other villages and Greenpeace activists gather in the village.

Para marcar o Dia Internacional das Florestas (21 de março), lideranças Munduruku foram até um trecho do rio Tapajós considerado sagrado pelo povo para passar um recado para o mundo: “Mantenham o Rio Tapajós vivo”. Segurando faixas em diversas línguas, eles protestaram, ao lado de ativistas do Greenpeace, contra a construção de barragens no rio que sustenta sua cultura e modo de vida. Ao todo, há 43 hidrelétricas previstas para a bacia do Tapajós, sendo cinco já planejadas. A maior delas é a de São Luiz do Tapajós, próxima a Itaituba, no Pará, que, se construída, vai afetar a vida de povos indígenas e ribeirinhos, além de destruir uma área de intensa biodiversidade na Amazônia. Terra Indígena Sawré Muybu - Itaituba, Pará.
