Brazil: MAB Protests at the Vale Office in Rio de Janeiro

Approximately one thousand people denounce two years of impunity of the crime that occurred with the rupturing of the dam in Mariana, Minas Gerais (MG).

“They knew it would burst,” sang a thousand people in chorus who came from diverse regions of Minas Gerais, Espirito Santo and even Rio de Janeiro. At 378 Almirante Guilherm Street, it looks like just another building in the Leblon neighborhood in Rio. But that is where one of Vale S.A.’s offices is located, the largest iron ore producer in the world and the one of the two companies responsible for the largest socio-environmental disaster in the world.

First thing in the morning on Monday, October 02, the populations affected by the Fundão tailings dam that burst in November of 2015, marched to denounce the impunity of this crime. Samarco, owner of the dam, is controlled by the Brazilian mining company Vale and by the Anglo-Australian company BHP Billiton.

“While they are relaxed inside their air conditioned building, all of us, the people affected by the mining companies’ crime (Samarco, Vale and BH Billiton), these two years we have lived with the lack of water, health problems and a lot of mud,” said Simone Silva, resident of the municipality of Barra Longa, MG.
