synopsis

The Biobí­o is one of the longest rivers in Chile, flowing from its source in the Andes down into the Pacific Ocean. Of incalculable ecological value, it is also of great historical and political importance: during the Spanish occupation, the Biobío formed a natural border beyond which the Spanish were unable to subjugate the indigenous pehuenche-mapuche people.
The world's third largest dam, Ralco, on the Biobí­o, was inaugurated in 2004, following innumerable confrontations with the mapuches. The ancestral land of this people has been flooded by Endesa, the Spanish multinational.
