Three Gorges NPR's Mary Kay Magistad reports that a Chinese sociologist has released a study on the progress of resettling people who live near the huge Three Gorges Dam Project on the Yangtze River. The world's biggest dam project will force the re-location of between one and two million area residents. The sociologist says the resettlement is way behind schedule and that the government may have to use force to get people to move. The sociologist also says that many people who HAVE moved report their living conditions are worse than before, despite government promises to the contrary.
