Yes, I signed the petition too, a while ago. The website, stopfortis.org, has many updates and info, including the address to send a letter of protest to the fortis CEO. Fortis is the Canadian company which wants to build the hydorelectric dam in Belize. Also, you can get involved in such groups in the US as the Natural Resources Defense Council and the World Wildlife Fund, which is also involved in averting the "dam disaster". As a non-citizen, I think that's what we can do. I might add that I really agree with Jane on this. As a community activist in my neighborhood and city, I really try to get involved in issues, write letters, go to meetings, etc. We may not always be able to change the world, but you would amazed at the "ripple effect" one's constructive words, actions, letters and opinions can have.
