Brunilda Gjini started this petition to Government of Albania and

I was born in a small village in Albania called Madhesh. Recognized international for it’s natural and historical values, this village is left behind by the Government of Albania. After leaving the few families with no access to healthcare, education, water and transportation the Government of Albania has decided to also destroy the natural ecosystem. This petition is to stop the Government of Albania and company “Ulza SHPK” from building an Hydroelectric Dam in Madhesh. This dam will have an extreme environmental impact: it will destroy forest, wildlife habitat, agricultural land, and scenic lands. This dam will be built and use the water source that has supplied the village for centuries leaving the families with even less access to clean drinking water. Additionally, hydroelectric dams release global warming emissions during the installation and facility operation which will impact neighboring cities and regions. The negative social and environmental impacts of this dam outweigh the private benefits of corrupted government officials who are willing to destroy our land for personal favours and profits. There has been multiple protests so far to stop the construction of this dam but neither the company that has undertaken the project nor the Government of Albania has answered any of the concerns that the community has.Please sign the petition and share with your network to prevent the Government of Albania from destroying yet another natural beauty of our country.
