EDF’s ‘life threatening’ dam in Burma

French energy giant EDF is involved in a dam project in Burma which local people say will threaten lives, prolong conflict and threaten the peace process in the country.

The dam, called Shweli 3, is moving closer to development and construction and there are fears of more conflict and abuses.

Mai Amm Ngeal of local organisation Ta’ang Students and Youth Network has stated: “It is certain that continued work on the project will only further intensify conflict, human rights violations, and displacement, as well as threaten the peace process,”

Tell EDF to pull out of Shweli 3! No more dams in conflict zones!
