Green lobby group Friends of the Earth (FoE) and Kurdish human rights activists were threatening to disrupt contractor Balfour Beatty's annual general meeting this week in protest over the firm's continued involvement in the consortium lined up to build Turkey's Ilisu dam. They claim that the proposed dam on the River Tigris will be an environmental, political and humanitarian disaster. FoE owns £30,000 worth of Balfour Beatty shares.
