Rio Doce is dying, ignored

Rio Doce, in Brazil, a river bigger than the biggest river of many many countries, is dying. The outcry should be bigger, local and international news just seem not to care. Go figure. The cause: two dams holding effluent from mining operations collapsed, the contaminatex sludge is going hundreds of miles and all the way to the sea, killing all (I mean 100%) of fishes and another huge amount of wildlife. Major cities, one of them a city of 250,000 inhabitants, have no drinking water. PLEASE do something to call attention to the lack of attention.
