Panama: Ngäbe Communities Remain on High Alert

Ngäbe communities in Panama remain on high alert after the government announced its intention to evict the Tabasará River area in western Panama.
 
Gathered on the banks on the river Tabasará, Ngäbe from the village of Kiabda and other affected communities have established a protest camp to halt the completion of a 28.58 megawatt hydroelectric dam, Barro Blanco. The completion of the project will result in the communities losing their homes, livelihoods and cultural heritage.
