Mavrovo Petition - World Bank

On June 26, 2014, the World Bank Country Unit for Southeast Europe based in Vienna had unusual visitors. Representatives of the environmental NGO Riverwatch handed over a letter of protest - signed by 77,930 people - against the proposed funding of a hydroelectric dam in the Mavrovo National Park in Macedonia.  “Hands off Mavrovo!” is what the signees demand from Ellen Goldstein, director of the World Bank Country Unit for Southeast Europe.
