Somming Muangrong, chairman of an anti-dam committee in tambon Sa-iab of Phrae's Song district, said residents of the tambon and people from Phayao's Chiang Muan district would attend the meeting to express their opposition to the construction of the Upper and Lower Yom dams.

The forum, which is the third to be held on the project, will take place on Tuesday.
