Recently Chile’s environmental authorities approved HidroAysén’s proposal to build five dams on two of Patagonia’s wildest rivers. The 11-to-one vote ended an almost three year review process for what has become the biggest environmental controversy in the country’s history.
THE CHILEAN PEOPLE are letting the government know how they feel about the decision through the numerous protests that are going on all over the country – some violent, some peaceful.
Protestas 21 Mayo, 2011.
