In Brazil, the Belo Monte reservior alone will flood over 60 miles (500km2) of the Amazon rainforest and agricultural lands and will directly impact the Pacquicamba Reserve of the Juruna indigenous people and their lands, forcing them to relocate. This hydroelectric dam will be the 3rd largest in the world but only produce 11,000 megawatts for three months of the year; thus making this one of the most inefficient dams. Sigourney Weaver joined Indigenous leaders and activists in a peaceful demonstration in front of Brazil's Permanent Mission on April 28, during the week of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York.
