INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS

Power plant proposal rejected

Temas:

Indigenous leaders have rejected a proposal by President Juan Carlos Varela that sought to allow the completion of the Barro Blanco hydroelectric plant.

Earlier, Varela called for indigenous groups to allow the completion of the almost-finished project, located on the Tabasara River. He said the hydroelectric plant would not enter into operation until talks were held with the communities impacted by the project.

But this proposal was rejected by a group led by Chief Silvia Carrera, who said the project needs to be dismantled.

Indigenous protesters have prevented workers from getting to the site for months.
