Free Burma’s Rivers, and Free Burma
On this International Day of Action for Rivers, Burma Rivers Network calls on neighboring countries, dam builders, and international financial institutions to recognize the experience of dam-affected peoples in Burma. Dam projects should be put on hold until affected people are given opportunities to fully participate in project decisions, and energy planning is transparent and taken into consideration alternatives to dams. We stand and say: Free Burma’s Rivers, and Free Burma.
