Ilisu Dam Reservoir grows according to new satellite images

Posted on Updated on

Satellite images from 7.9.19 show that the Ilisu Dam Reservoir is growing. It affects already one third of the planned Tigris River stretch to be flooded. At least 20 villages have been flooded. If this continues the dam reservior will achieve soon Hasankeyf and will increase the ecological, social and cultural destruction. The struggle against this project of destruction, exploitation and hegemony continues. We call on everybody to join the Global Hasankeyf Action Day on 14th September!
