Consolidating Consensus, Advancing People’s Struggles and Building Alternatives
In early July of this year, news reports emerged of a pending deal between the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage Services (MWSS) and San Miguel Bulk Water Inc for the implementation of the long-proposed Laiban Dam Project through a joint venture agreement. Since these reports came out, allegations of non-transparency in the entire negotiation process between the MWSS and San Miguel have been hurled by the National Economic Development Authority against the MWSS. Local and environmental groups, on the other hand, have risen again against these new developments, condemning the project itself for its disastrous impact on the lives of the families residing in the project area.
