Protest to End Myitsone Dam

Fear is back in Myanmar that construction of the Myitsone Dam, suspended by president Thein Sein in 2011, will resume after the 2015 general elections. On March 14, hundreds of villagers and environmentalists demonstrated at the entrance of the project site. A protest march was expected to start from Yangon on March 22. The 6,000-megawatt dam would provide electricity to Yunnan Province in neighboring China and is to be financed by the China Power Investment (CPI) Corporation. Photos: RFA Myanmar Service
