Anglicans in Myanmar are opposing the construction of the proposed Myitsone Dam, saying it will displace thousands of people. The developers – China Power Investment Corporation, the Burmese government’s ministry of electric power and the Asia World Company – intend to build the dam at the source of the Irrawaddy River, at the confluence of the Mali Hka and Nmai Hka rivers.
