Our duty is to organize the whole population affected by dams in Brazil while exposing the contradictions of this society. If from one side, the companies and the governments choose to follow a principle of commodification of water, energy, and people's lives, the affected women choose to follow the principle of life, of common good: water and energy are not commodities, they are part of the sovereignty, the creation of wealth and redistribution should therefore be under popular control.
