The Mekong River dams have an impact on the environment too much, and you will lose your river, fishes, forest, or the environment forever. I heard a lot people in America said “why don’t you go to tell Chinese to stop Mekong River dam”. Think twice before you say that because China is not member of Mekong River Commission (MRC). Do you not need to save your house from a fire first or you support a fire to burning your house?
Before you go out to tell the Chinese to stop dams in the Mekong River, look first at how it will affect the people living around the dams. Is the Mekong River is important to you and your family, please think about future of the Mekong River and what you will be gain or will be lost,
If you do not wake up, please look back more than 30 years ago and why you left Laos and came to United States of America or any other country. Make sure you look back and look long term and not short term; you need to respect yourself and not follow someone. How many dams in Laos are they planning to build? If you do not know, I would like you to know. There will be more than 70 dams planned to be built and there is no need to build on Mekong River.
Please, I ask you to save our land from outsiders who are planning to destroy our land; they are not coming to benefit the people. They are coming to make millions and leave the country in rubbish.
Are you still proud to be Laotian inside? If you are, then the Laos land needs to be saved.
I Respect you!
