Our group of allies is increasing! Artists raise their voices against the total destruction of Balkan rivers – they want to see them protected, not dammed.
Ulrich Eichelmann (Riverwatch) takes you to the Bence River - a tributary of the Vjosa and one of the most beautiful and ecologically most valuable rivers in Albania. However, the river is threatened by the construction of a hydropower plant: 95% of its water is to be diverted into pipelines in order to generate electricity. Within the context of the campaign, we are trying to protect this river amongst many others. Watch the videos below and check out our photo gallery.
On April 29, 2015, about 150 people protested against the construction of a hydropower plant on the Bence.
Among the protester was singer Golik, who sings about the beauty of the Bence River.
