It is really sad news that the European Court of Human Rights rejected the case opposing the Ilisu dam project. That means that Hasankeyf – one of the oldest human settlements – will be submerged in the reservoir.

If you like to learn more about Hasankeyf, I already wrote about this city on the edge of disappearing in more detail and did an interview with John Crofoot, one of the co-founders of the initiative Hasankeyf Matters.
