Namibia: Say No to Marine Phosphate Mining

Marine phosphate mining is once again on the decision making table and it seems that this time the Environmental Commissioner wants to say yes, after ignoring public concerns. The mining companies are also deliberately ignoring the law and have not consulted the public as required. Both the Environmental Commissioner and the proponents of marine phosphate mining must follow a public consultation process under section 6 of Namibia's Environmental Management Act (2007), and sections 16 and 19 of the Environmental Management Act Regulations (2012). Please urgently sign this petition to voice your concerns and share this petition widely.
