Of course, damming rivers without extensive environmental impact studies and
engineering studies and economic feasability studies is unacceptable. The
Salveen flows through thousands of miles and most ot it through ethnic minority
states in Burma. At the least, their voices should be heard.

The military regime that is used to doing things as "they" see fit, but that
have long term impact on the environment and the people must be questioned every
step of the way.
