Full title: Dam Project Threatens 11,000-Year-Old Turkish Village.

Hassankeyf is an 11,000 year old village situated at the shore of the Tigris River, in the southeast of Turkey. A place that meets six of the eight criteria to be a World Heritage site. But the Turkish government hasn't applied for the UNESCO heritage. The plans are to build the so called Iliusu Dam, which would completely cover Hassankeyf.
In this video several people give their opinion about the project.
