🇧🇷 Brazil ruling boosts fears over Amazon dam projects

Brazil's supreme court has authorised the privatisation of the giant state-owned electric company, Electrobras. The move came as the government sends out mixed signals about the future of hydroelectric dam projects, particularly on the Amazon River.
Activists and locals fear the plans would have a devastating ecological impact on the entire Amazon basin.
