DescriptionThe words that are expressed are about the water that is in our midst. It has been damaged by the company in our territory now and there are tunnels in our hills to trap our rivers. [The water] neither runs nor does it arrive in our homes. “We as indigenous people no longer want businesses to enter into our territories to export electricity or come only for our rivers, and we already have a memorial where we say that they no longer have the right to enter, and that they must not send themselves alone. We are not going to to welcome them, because they do not welcome us in their villages even though we receive them here,” she emphasized.
