This statement argues: "With so much at stake to the Mekong River and its people as a result of dam developments, we, members of civil society groups and local communities at the regional public forum on “The Don Sahong Dam in Lao PDR: perspectives from Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam” on 19 February 2014 at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, jointly demand that Mekong Governments recognize the impacts suffered by people who have been affected by large hydropower dams, consider the demands of local communities and respect their rights to participate in decision making. Therefore, the Mekong governments should make every effort to immediately stop all construction on the Mekong mainstream dams and ensure that no future agreements are signed. We demand that all Thai banks investing in the Xayaburi Dam, should stop all future loans to the project and immediately release to the public all reports it has commissioned regarding the project. Finally, we demand that no investment in the Don Sahong Dam is made."
