On February 2 another protest rally was held against the construction of HPS. The residents of Pankisi require an immediate suspension of Hydro Power Station (HPS) construction in Pankisi Gorge. The protest rally is actively in progress against the cascade construction. The population of Pankisi has been protesting the construction of the plant for months and state that the power station will impact on the ecological situation of the valley. The harm of the hydro plant will be larger than the profit.  It will infict great damage to the nature, environment and farming, where the river will be dammed and cause a drought.
