Mekong: International petition against the Xayaburi Dam

On the first week of November, International Rivers launched an international petition calling on the Prime Ministers of Laos and Thailand to cancel plans to build the Xayaburi Dam. They expect to collect as many signatures as possible to help add pressure on these governments before the upcoming Mekong River Commission Council meeting that will take place from next December 7-9th.

You can help circulating the petition to your list-serves and placing a link to it on your websites. The petition can be found at
