Great News for Peoples of the Amazon

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americ...648943471.html

Essentially, a court decision was reached to suspend construction of the Belo Monte dam, which would have displaced countless indigenous peoples as well as millions of acres of rainforest habitat, along with untold numbers of species.

The court said the consortium was liable for a daily fine of $250,000 should it flout the order.
I wouldn't be surprised if they just pay the $250,000 fine and build it it anyway. That kind of money is a drop in the ocean for a project of this scale.

That's $250,000 a day. Not a one time fine.
