Only in Brazil

The controversial Belo Monte dam in the Amazon received another blow this week, when a federal judge halted its construction citing that indigenous people in the region were not properly consulted. The government claims they were, and presented a very "green" plan for building the hydroelectric dam without impacting the area too much. A stalemate, but this week at least, Native Indians 1 X Brazil 0.
