A Threat to Cambodia's Sacred Forests

[chuck] in Areng Valley, Cambodia

Beautiful documentary by Kaylanee Mam about the threat to forests and forest dwellers caused by the planned construction of a hydroelectric dam in the pristine Areng Valley of southwest Cambodia. Just one of the innumerable violations of nature and indigneous humanity that occurs, it seems, almost every day on this planet. I post this piece because the Chong village is very close to where we did some of our rattan work in Cambodia (see Finally, Its a Book). [NOTE: Go here and here to find out more about the proposed dam and what you can do about it].
