Millions more face relocation from Three Gorges Reservoir Area

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on October 11, 2007

At least four million people from the Three Gorges Reservoir area are to be relocated to cities in the next 10 to 15 years, according to Vice Mayor Yu Yuanmu of Chongqing Municipality.

Under the 2007-2020 rural and urban development plan of Chongqing, which was approved by the State Council on Sep. 20, there settlements were necessary to protect the ecology of the reservoir area, said Yu.

Damn. They have already moved millions of people already. Something tells me there is going to a disaster involving Three Gorges in the future..

    This is a monster undertaking. And guess who is building it? You are! Yep, China holds more US dollars then most countries. We are paying, and have been paying for the forced evictions of millions..
