Abstract: Construction of the Ralco power plant on the Upper Biobío river in Chile threatens to topple the river's fragile ecology and cut off vital access to water for nearby Pehuenche communities. A campaign to stop the project is underway, but faces powerful opponents such as national energy corporations and international funding agencies.
