A third of Altamira in the state of Para, Brazil will be flooded to make way for the Belo Monte dam, nearly all the people affected are the poorest in society or indigenous communities that will have nowhere to go if they were made homeless, and the Government payoff for their properties is low therefore making it difficult to find new accomodation. The local people are poorly informed about the developments with the dam, and feel powerless because they haven't been consulted in the process.
