Demand Democracy for Chile - NO to HidroAysén!
Send a letter to the Chilean Embassy to support the Chilean demand for democracy and truly sustainable development.
On May 9th, 2011 the Environmental Impact Assessment for the destructive HidroAysén project in Patagonia was approved, despite flaws and irregularities in the entire process. A team of lawyers, activists and affected people in Chile filed a lawsuit soon after, citing the irregularities in the EIA process. The Supreme Court is set to rule on the case in December of 2011 or January 2012.
Chileans have held massive demonstrations throughout Chile and around the world calling for a Patagonia Sin Represas (Patagonia Without Dams), and another one is scheduled for December 10.
The government of Chile should respect the 74% of Chileans who are opposed to damming the rivers of Patagonia, and who are instead calling for a truly sustainable energy future.
Please join this amazing movement for sustainable development by sending a letter to the Chilean Embassy now.
