There is a resurgence of mega – dam building worldwide. However, dams have innumerable negative effects including species extinction, displacement, and soil erosion. Dams only serve the interests of corporations and industries whose corrupt practices have devastating impact on ecosystems and human life.

A soaring scene in blue and white of waters held back, and released, by a huge dam. In the distance there is a mountain range and a series of houses that seem to have been flooded. In the foreground, rushing waters come out of the concrete construction. A crowd of people march with fists raised and they hold an enormous banner that begins to elongate and flow upward, being held by a flying water bird. Text on the banner reads: “No more dams! Defend Rivers, water, and life.”
