Villagers Sign Complaint Letter About Anyarphya Hydropower Project in Tavoy

March 13, 2012

As many as 3,000 villagers sign a complaint letter addressed to President Thein Sein about the ongoing Anyarphya Hydropower Project in Tavoy, Tenasserim Division on March 12, 2012, expressing their concerns over the local impact of the project and the losses that villagers will have to bear. Villagers stressed that they have no desire to relocate from their inherited and naturally rich land.

The site for the dam project is located about 20 km east of the Dawei Economic Zone and when completed will become one of at least two hydropower projects that will provide electricity to the multi-billion-dollar industrial plant and deep-sea port .
