This problem was predicted long before the dam was started. Unfortunately no one messes with China and they are free to do what they want. Maybe we should just look out for that "Made in China" label on that TV, PC, clothing, furniture or whatever and avoid it like the very plague itself.......will we...mmm...I doubt it!

The government may deny human rights abuse but in fact people ARE abused. The Chibnese are buying the whole world and ruining people's lives wherever they arrive.

This area is considered as a UNESCO world heritage. What are foreigners doing there without asking for the UNESCO's permission first?

The poor Ethiopians seem to be having a rough time again, and with no one to help them. Will this kind of thing be our fate also!
