Neighborhoods join together against oil refinery
The foundation is committed to fighting pollution and stench of the Isla refinery and the BOO-plant. If necessary by taking legal steps to force the government to act against the pollution caused by these two entities.
The foundation stresses that they are not going for the closure of the Isla refinery or the BOO-plant. However, they want the government to take responsibility and protect the people of Curaçao when it comes to public health.
In a letter to Minister of Public Health, Environment and Nature, Dr. Ben Whiteman, the foundation demands that he acts within four weeks against the foul stench and pollution. Members of Parliament have also received the letter requesting them to enforce the standards.
