Activists oppose Guatemala dam being backed by Spanish company
Deutsche Welle - The arrival of transnational dam-builders in Guatemala is threatening cultural and natural riches. DW met with activists in Berlin, who are asking Europeans to reexamine exactly what such "green energy" entails.
"Lyda Fernanda Forero, who works on economic justice and corporate power at the Transnational Institute in the Netherlands, agrees with the idea of allowing people to make decisions based on knowledge of their own environments.
"We have to support local communities who say they don't want these projects, but want to use their land differently," she told DW. "And we have to see how sustainable that is.""
