Environmental Activists Seek To Halt Dyke Construction


Srisuwan Janya, president of the Stop Global Warming Association stated that the association is seeking to petition the Central administrative Court to issue an injunction against the construction of dykes the government is planning to build at seven industrial estates in its flood prevention programme.

Mr. Srisuwan reasoned that the dykes would cause the villages to be flooded and cause damage to their homes.

However, the move has been counterattacked by the industrial estate operators who were of the opinion that the construction of dykes was urgently required to restore investor’s confidence as just 30% of companies hit by last year’s severe flood have resumed operation.
