Marchena challenge for government officials

Oil Refinery Smoke Over CuracaoWILLEMSTAD – The Clean Environment Foundation and Clean Air Everywhere are challenging ministers, members of parliament and civil servants to go to the neighborhood Marchena, which is right next to the oil refinery.

The challenge is to spend two days in Wishi/Marchena, right in the shadow of the refinery. The challenge comes after the third session in the summary proceedings against the government of Curaçao. And to make it “attractive” for the government officials, the environmental groups are providing breakfast.

The foundations indicate that the government officials are not aware of how much the people in those neighborhoods are suffering from the emissions of the oil refinery.
