Marine Phosphate Mining - Environmental Impact Assessment

As many of you may know, marine phosphate mining would be a disaster for the entire marine ecosystem off the coast of Namibia as well as for several vital industries and more than 15,000 jobs that rely on the marine ecosystem being sustainable and productive (fishing industry, salt works, etc). Marine phosphates pose a major danger to health because they are highly radioactive and marine phosphate mining has never been allowed anywhere else in the world because of the danger it poses to marine life. Local and international experts agree that this project should not go ahead, but yet this project continues to bulldoze it's way forward.

For those of you in Namibia, please attend the meeting on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report for the marine component of the Sandpiper Phosphate Project.

Date: Thursday, 12 April 2012
Venue: Pelican Bay Hotel, Walvis Bay
Time: 18h30
Please RSVP your attendance to carla@envirod.com

It is critical that we make our voices heard. Please pass this message on to others that may be interested or concerned.

Let us stand strong and united to protect Namibia, what many have called "a patch of heaven."

Thanks for your time and concern.
