Screening of the film „River Sisters” and meeting with Cecylia Malik.

Other rivers such as the Dunajec, Soła, Pilica, and Raba are coming to the rescue of the Wisla River from the planned new large dam in Siarzewo. Cecylia Malik calls on women to give voice to the rivers and join the fight that is taking place between ecologists associated in the Save the Rivers Coalition and politicians, officials and the hydrotechnical lobby.

The fight for values for wildlife, for landscape, for clean fresh water, which is becoming the most precious resource of the planet.

Now the decisive battle for the Wisla River is on! Decisions and tenders for the construction of a new dam in Siarzewo are being made! Let us not agree to baffle and devastate the Wisla!

Let us save one of the last, in large part natural, great rivers of Europe.
