Hsipaw public gather to oppose Naypyidaw’s new budget allocation for Upper Yeywa dam

Hsipaw residents are strongly opposed to the Upper Yeywa dam, which will submerge the entire village of Talong, with 653 inhabitants, 637 acres of orchards, 140 acres of rice fields, and countless hill-farms, as well as temples, pagodas, and schools. The dam was begun in 2008 by the former military regime, with locals only officially informed about the project in 2014.

U Htun Naing also named European engineering companies involved in the Upper Yeywa dam, apparently to inspire confidence in its stability: Germany’s Lahmeyer, Switzerland’s Stuckey SA, and France’s joint venture IPGRB. He failed to mention that Lahmeyer is a subsidiary of Tractebel ENGIE, the consulting engineer for the Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy dam which collapsed in Laos last July, killing hundreds and displacing thousands.
