Brazilian indigenous youth apply traditional body paint before a protest against the construction of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric power plant in front of the Federal Court in Sao Paulo October 17, 2011. The Brazilian government approved in June the construction of the Belo Monte dam in the Xingu river, which has drawn strong criticism from natives, environmentalists and even international celebrities like singer Sting and director James Cameron. A Brazilian judge has ordered the halt of construction works in a multi-billion hydroelectric project in the Amazon alleging it affects local fishing activities, while Environment Minister says the dam is complying with the law and is properly licensed.

A boy throws a fishing net in the water near blockhouses on an affluent of the Xingu river in Altamira, northern Brazil, April 27, 2010. After nearly three decades of sometimes violent protests, about 1,000 other indigenous people in the remote region have resigned themselves to the fact that the world's third-largest dam will be built in their backyard. Supporters say the Belo Monte dam will create jobs in a downtrodden region and help power Latin America's largest economy but critics say the race for economic prosperity also brings social and environmental costs.

Brazilian indigenous people protest outside Brazil's electric energy agency Aneel in Brasilia April 20, 2010, against the construction of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric power plant in the Xingu River. Aneel suspended the auction of the 11,000 megawatt Belo Monte hydroelectric dam that was scheduled for midday (1500 GMT) on Tuesday because of an injunction filed by a public prosecutor in a federal court, ordering it to suspend the auction. Aneel is prepared to go ahead even if the injunction is overturned just minutes before the established time for the auction of the high profile hydroelectric project.
