Em meio a mais um episódio de resistência à construção do empreendimento, com a atual ocupação da ensecadeira do canteiro de obras Pimental por cerca de 120 pescadores e indígenas, os fatos trazem à tona uma realidade que não aparece nos televisores que as usinas hidrelétricas mantêm ligados Brasil afora.
Amid another episode of resistance to the construction of the project by about 120 fishermen and indigenous people, with the current occupation of the cofferdam construction site Pimental the facts that were brought to light represent a reality that does not appear on televisions that hydroelectric plants remain connected throughout Brazil.
According to the indigenous peoples, Nesa is not in compliance with the conditions required to safeguard indigenous health. The consortium was limited to providing materials for the campaign against malaria, which focused not only indigenous peoples. Wiliam's states that once the District Council has a project for emergency health and Nesa will become part of the Basic Environmental Program (PBA).
For indigenous leaders and opponents to the plant, the transnational and multinational conglomerate builder's work believe that Belo Monte is a fait accompli, and therefore it is no longer necessary to provide resources to indigenous communities and meet the requirements previously set out - although in each occupation of the construction sites the military police clamp down on the protesters with helicopters and vehicles identifiably marked by the Nesa trademark.
