\"Please Explain How Mining and Hydroelectric Projects Help Panamanians\"
Authored by: salmegal28 on Tuesday, February 28 2012 @ 07:10 am EST

I just wanted to point out, with regard to the hydroelectric projects here in the Changuinola and Almirante area, that the land that has been used for these projects did belong to the indigenous people, and they along with the towns of Changuinola and Almirante will not recieve one single kilowatt of electricity from these projects. All of it is going to CR and points south, in spite of all of us here in this region having constant daily shortages and cut offs of electricity. I saw a statistic some time ago how Bocas del Toro was top on the list of areas where electricity is being conserved. The reason for the occurance is because we often do not have any electricity generated, or it is deliberately turned off. Further the dams will be interfering with the water flow that IDAAN uses for our water supply which is also already in short supply here. So these particular projects will not benefit anyone in this area.
