Belize Environmentalists sue to save Rainforest

Date : 14th Mar 2002, Source : NRDC

A lawsuit filed by Belizean environmentalists with support from NRDC has brought a halt to preliminary work on a proposed hydroelectric dam that would destroy the Macal River Valley, one of Central America's last intact rainforests. The suit, the first of its kind in Belize, accuses the Belizean government of violating the country's environmental laws on behalf of Fortis Inc., the Canadian backer of the dam.
