Announcement

Pak Mun Dam gates open for four months
All eight gates of the Pak Mun Dam were finally opened on June 2. They will remain open for four months, until October 2, while studies are conducted. There will be three major studies - one on fisheries, social impacts and environmental impacts, one on preparing a reparations plan for communities affected by the project, and one looking at the impact of opening the dam gates on Thailand's electricity supply. The villagers at Pak Mun are very happy and would like to extend their thanks to all their international supporters who have helped them achieve this great victory.
