WPN to support No to Laiban Dam picket

In IBON Networks on February 16, 2010 at 10:00 am

The Water for the People Network will show its support for one of its organizations, the Network Opposed to Laiban Dam (No to Laiban Dam) as it holds a picket outside the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) office tomorrow, 10 a.m.

The network will demand MWSS officials on the real score of its joint-venture deal with San Miguel Corp. (SMC) to build and operate the P52-billion Laiban Dam in Tanay, Rizal.

The rehabilitation of the Laiban Dam will cause the displacement of about 22,000 residents in around eight barangays in Rizal.

According to reports, the MWSS is expected to award the Laiban project to SMC by March 2010.

For details, please call the WPN Secretariat at 927-7060 loc 401 or at 0917-4844065.
