Tapajós Action at Siemens in Washington D.C.
Greenpeace activists set up a platform with pictures of the Munduruku Indigenous People and the rainforests at the doorstep of Siemens Corporation US headquarters in Washington, DC calling the company to save the heart of the Amazon. The activists also delivered a box to Siemens executives, with a message printed on its sides to represent the more than one million signatures from people that support the call of the Munduruku around the globe. Siemens must not participate in any way in the construction of dams planned by the Brazilian government in the region.
The Munduruku inhabit rainforests in the banks of the Tapajós river where the Brazilian government intends to build a large complex of more than 40 dams that would force the Munduruku to leave their traditional home against their will, losing their livelihood.
