Dear comrades,

As some of you know, JA has been fighting against the proposal Mphanda Nkuwa dam in the Zambezi river for well over 12 years. since the EIA was approved (2011) without even answering our questions and concerns, we have been following the energy-purchase agreements funding.

The reason this horrid project was not rejected, is Guebuza, the president of Mozambique´s own interest and involvement, using his power to push the project for his own benefit. The latest news was that the South African president Zuma and his son are also involved. see our blog on this topic here <http://ja4change.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/water-financialization-exposed-in-new-report-on-eve-of-wto-meeting-includes-critique-of-proposed-mphanda-nkuwa-dam-in-mozambique/>.

As such we discovered that EDF (Electricity of France), is interested in partly funding the project, so we hope to raise their awareness to such a risky project, and in doing so hopefully they will walk out of it.

Attached a letter that is already translated in French by Malika (FOE France), and will be delivered by them to EDF, and what i would love to have as many signatures as possible. FOE France is trying to get the local NGO signatures,and I'm sending to all of you for also have your support.

If you agree in endorsing your organisation to this letter, please do send an email to me: anabela.ja.mz@gmail.com <mailto:anabela.ja.mz@gmail.com>, as soon as possible, deadline

Another great news: a banner challenging Mphanda Nkuwa produced by FoE EWNI in conjunction with JA and UK artists will be displayed at the V&A Museum in London from July 2014 until early-2015. See a photo of the banner here <http://ja4change.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/stop-damming-the-zambezi/>.

Director of JA!
