The World Bank funded Chico Dam Project in 1965 was the Marcos dictatorship’s answer to the oil and power crisis of 1973. It threatened to displace 100,000 people, deluge sacred burial grounds and rice terraces. Different tribes united and rose against the dam and militarization it brought. The death of leader Macli-ing Dulag in 1980 and the people’s resistance forced the WB and Marcos to abandon the project.
