Bangladesh: Stop the Rampal power project
The world’s largest mangrove forest lies on the deltas of three rivers: the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. It is here, in an area of outstanding natural beauty called the Sundarbans, that the Bangladeshi government plans to site a coal-fired power plant.
The Rampal power project must be stopped. That’s the demand of the Committee to Protect Oil, Gas and Mineral Resources in Bangladesh, which organised a 400km “Long March” from the capital, Dhaka, to the Sundarbans in the district of Bagherhat.
