Belo Monte dam

A headsup on a potential problem here. The Xingu tribe of Brazil is back at the site of the big (well in fact it's massive) Belo Monte hydroelectric dam project in Brazil, saying that they've returned to stop construction from going ahead because the government has ingored them in negotiations. Brazil's government yesterday got eviction orders from its judiciary and police are now gatehring on site to make good on the eviction. This could end badly and it's an issue to eye an eye on.
