There isn't much time to help stop the flooding. But we must do something as this will be a huge disaster and cannot be reversed.
Please ask the President of Colombia and the Colombian Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development to stop the diversion of the Magdalena River before it is too late!
We the undersigned sincerely ask the Government of Colombia to stop the diversion of the Magdalena River that is scheduled to occur on February 8th, 2012. This will ruin 8,250 hectares of land as the river will wash it all away. If this flooding occurs, it will devastate the region as hundreds of communities depend on the valuable and fertile land that the river will flood. As the communities in the region have been protesting this project since 2008 and have also recently protested against it in January 2012, this dam is clearly a detrimental project as thousands of people will have to find new and scare sources of food and income.
Please act quickly and shut down this dam as once the diversion of the Magdalena River occurs, there is no way to reverse it and the devastation it will cause. Show your people and the world that you care about them and your country's most valuable land and resources.
