Disruption two waste dams, water and mud, equivalent to 65 million cubic meters in the municipality of Mariana, Minas Gerais, Brazil, which took place on 05 November, used as deposits of iron ore extraction.
 
The national press says 11 people have died and 12 were missing, but the commentary is that number is much higher.
 
It is important to note the lack of enforcement of environmental agencies, both local, state and federal.
 
This breakup almost killed the Rio Doce. Important river bathing area where they live and many people use the river as fishing, about 3 mihões people.
 
To scale the size of the impact, by weight, equivalent to over 120 000 aircraft Airbus A380.
 
Yesterday, after covering about 600 km from the rupture area, the mud came in the Delta do Rio Doce, entering the Atlantic Ocean.
 
The environmental impact is not known in the mangrove area, where the ecosystem is more sensitive.
 
Environmental crime.
 
There are moments that I am ashamed to know that here there are unscrupulous people where lives are worthless and corruption is part of everyday life of the vast majority of public and even private administrators.

The mud eviction has led in the Atlantic Ocean high amounts of mercury, arsenic, chromium and manganese.
 
The company that owns the project, had been fined eight times in the past four years, in total amount of approximately $ 40 thousand, due to "gaps" in legislation to date has not paid a dime.
 
Now, fined $ 66 million for five different environmental crimes. Not will pay. For these and other reasons it is important disclosure and for people, not only in Brazil, are aware that the greatest environmental disaster in Brazil.

After 7 months after the tragedy, the largest of its kind took place on the globe where between 50 to 60 MILLIONS m³ leaked tailings dams, affecting millions of people.
 
At that time, we got away from the president of the republic, even temporarily, for not following the legislation dealing with fiscal responsibility in public admistration and which, with its clumsy policy, linked to political parties responsible for most corruption of all time occurred in globe should delay in Brazil at least 10 years. She's almost out, since more than two thirds must vote for their output.
 
Impunity remains the passport so that politicians and "public officials" Brazilians act as if what is public was private (them).
 
What has given us encouragement and hope, is an operation, Lava-Jet, which began almost "out of nothing", where the Federal Public Ministry, Federal Policy and a judge, Sergio Moro, combined with popular mobilization, are doing the difference, putting politicians, the largest Brazilian businessmen, representatives of multinationals. . . in jail.

The company responsible for the rugged dams, Samarco.

 

Who is Samarco: Founded in 1977, Samarco is a Brazilian mining company, privately owned, controlled equally by two shareholders: BHP Billiton Brazil Ltda (Anglo / Australian). and S.A Vale (Brazil).

 

. According to the Brazilian Federal Police, Samarco directors knew that dam could break:

NOTE: In Brazil, less than 3% of the amount of fines related to environmental crimes are paid = impunity.

Vale, BHP and Samarco close agreement on MPF on tragedy in Mariana
 
 
Brazilian society wants nothing more than compliance with environmental laws.
