Kayapo Assemble to Defend the Xingu

I'm rather proud of this video, given it was shot news-style over the course of 3 days, we still managed to get quite an important story told.

Sadly, the government is still hell bent on building Belo Monte - insanity in Brazil prevails in political circles, which is why we took to the streets yesterday, in the pouring rain, to protest the government's incompetency and corruption. As one protester lamented "there's no one flash point issue in Brazil right now" the country is awash in political malfeasance and the noise in the streets was to send a message to the government that the country is watching and they need to clean up their act.
