Knowing the truth is one thing. Doing something about it is another.
We invite you to do something by becoming an activist for food sovereignty and the human right to land, water and food.
- Support Families Affected by Dam Disasters: This past January 25th marked three years since the tragedy of the Brumadinho dam collapse in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Millions of cubic meters of toxic mining sludge were released, killing 272 people, burying entire communities, and poisoning the Paraopeba and São Francisco Rivers. It has also been six years since the Mariana dam disaster in the same region, which also devastated communities and the environment.
Today, communities continue to live with the devastating consequences of both tragedies, and instead of getting the support they need, they are being criminalized for demanding justice. Together with our partner the Movement of People Affected by Dams, we are asking for your solidarity to bring long-overdue justice to those impacted by the Brumadinho and Mariana disasters.
