As early as May or June of this year the reservoir created by the dam will flood fertile agricultural land and destroy the river’s fish and shrimp.


Trip leader Diane Dunn, of Collective Voices for Peace, Seattle, will discuss the Ngabe Bugle protests which closed the Pan-American Highway. She will also discuss a recent murder of a protester by four alleged masked plainclothes policemen.
