Text written by one of the judges invited at a pre-hearing of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT) on environmental destruction, which will take place November 5-6th in Temacapulín, Mexico, the town where Rivers for Life 3: The Third Meeting of Dam-affected People and Their Allies was held in late 2010. Temaca, as it’s affectionately called by its residents, is a small but committed town fighting inundation from El Zapotillo Dam.

It includes a list of the judges and an explanation on what the Permanent Peoples Tribunal is.  Ethical tribunals like the PPT work to promote universal respect of the fundamental rights of peoples, minorities and individuals, and for the creation of legislation that protects those rights.
