This is late, but is the AmazonWatch release on the event mentioned in the Avatar 2 article referenced above.

Brazil Judge Blocks Amazon Belo Monte Dam

February 26, 2011 | Source: BBC

Para, Brazil – A Brazilian judge has blocked plans to build a huge hydro-electric dam in the Amazon rainforest because of environmental concerns.

Federal judge Ronaldo Desterro said environmental requirements to build the Belo Monte dam had not been met.

He also barred the national development bank, BNDES, from funding the project.

The dam is a cornerstone of President Dilma Rousseff's plans to upgrade Brazil's energy infrastructure.

But it has faced protests and challenges from environmentalists and local indigenous groups who say it will harm the world's largest tropical rainforest and displace tens of thousands of people.

Judge Desterro said the Brazilian environmental agency, Ibama, had approved the project without ensuring that 29 environmental conditions had been met.

In particular, he said concerns that the dam would disrupt the flow of the Xingu river - one of the Amazon's main tributaries - had not been met.

His ruling is the latest stage in a long legal battle over Belo Monte. Previous injunctions blocking construction have been overturned.

The government says the Belo Monte dam is crucial for development and will create jobs, as well as provide electricity to 23 million homes.

The 11,000-megawatt dam would be the biggest in the world after the Three Gorges in China and Itaipu, which is jointly run by Brazil and Paraguay.

It has long been a source of controversy, with bidding halted three times before the state-owned Companhia Hidro Eletrica do Sao Francisco was awarded the contract last year.

Celebrities such as the singer Sting and film director James Cameron have joined environmentalists in their campaign against the project.

They say the 6km (3.7 miles) dam will threaten the survival of a number of indigenous groups and could make some 50,000 people homeless, as 500 sq km (190 sq miles) of land would be flooded.

Just want to let ya'll know, the project isn't "dead". It's on a hiatus now. It's up to the damn builders to see if its worth the time and money to continue on in the legal system with this. Just because they arn't able to meet the evironmental requirements doesn't mean that the government can't pass a new contract that lessens the requirements.

Because as it is now, the only thing that's stopping them is not meeting the environmental safety issues.

Well then let's hope they either give up or comply with the current environmental safety issues.

The funding has also been denied in the same action.

Re: Belo Monte Dam in Brazil - PROJECT HAS BEEN DENIED BY BRAZILIAN JUDGE
« Reply #136 on: March 03, 2011, 03:39:12 pm »
Yes, but the reason being is that they didn't meet the Environmental standards. That is the released clause right there. Once they meet said standards, or the standards are changed, then they are free to fund and free to continue building.

Hmmm, well hopefully the touring run that the tribal representatives did through the EU will help. This dam is a really bad idea, not just environmentally, but economically as well.

And ELM is right. It's already reversed and on again. It seems that the government's corporate lackies haven't given up.
