Workers employed in the construction of the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam project watch as a group of Amazon Indians, who are occupying for the second day the main construction site in protest against the dam's construction, patrol the site in Vitoria do Xingu, near Altamira in Para State May 3, 2013. Indians from the Munduruku, Juruna, Kayapo, Xipaya, Kuruaya, Asurini, Parakana, and Arara tribes have paralyzed the construction of the dam, projected to become the world's third largest in energy production, that they oppose for its impact on the environment and their livelihoods. On the second day, the Indians received the support of many of the construction laborers. REUTERS/Lunae Parracho (BRAZIL - Tags: BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT ENVIRONMENT ENERGY CIVIL UNREST SOCIETY)
