Chilean Patagonia is under attack by an international energy company that plans to build five massive hydroelectric dams on the Pasqua and Baker rivers. The dams would drown large swaths of wild land, industrialize a pastoral region with growing potential for ecotourism and require the clear-cutting of native forest to accommodate 1,500 miles of transmission lines.

Once the lines are constructed, no river in Chile will be safe from the threat of more dams. The people of southern Chile and their allies worldwide are fighting against determined corporate and political forces.
