Stop the Dams in Sudan!
Petition Background (Preamble):
This means that there will be three dams constructed on the River Nile, one at the Dal Cataract, one at Kajbar in the Third Cataract, and one at Shereik in the Fifth Cataract. The fourth dam will be built on the Atbara River, the last tributary of the Nile. None of these dams is actually necessary given the existence of alternative sources for energy production.
None of these dams has the consent of the local population who will be the ones most affected by the dam implementations.
