Chile's National Indigenous Development Council (CONADI) said
that the National Electricity Company (ENDESA) must stop work
on its $250 million Ralco dam on the Biobio river or face legal
action by indigenous groups. The dam project will flood native
Pehuenche lands, displacing 90 Pehuenche families from their
homes. ENDESA has sought to induce the families to exchange
their property for other land acquired by the company.
