Dear Supporter,

The Ilisu Dam in Southeast Turkey is one of the world's most controversial
hydropower projects. You may remember that the export credit agencies of
Germany, Austria and Switzerland pulled out of the project earlier this year
because the Turkish government consistently violated their social and
environmental conditions.

We recently learned that Turkey is now negotiating with China about renewed
funding for Ilisu Dam
<http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=SX9WGsBa6%2FtwUqbpKp

commitment to be a responsible international player and may unleash a new
environmental race to the bottom.

Learn more now!

Turkey's biggest environmental organization has already urged the Chinese
government to stay away from Ilisu. We are advising our Turkish partners in
their efforts, and I will raise their concerns when I visit China again in
January.

Several other governments and companies have burned their fingers on Ilisu
before, and we intend to win this fight. Stay tuned!
