This short video explains how bauxite is mined and the case of Awaso; a typical bauxite mining community in Ghana, where bauxite has been mined for 78 years now. The wild claims that the low grade bauxite in Atewa Forest Reserve can be mined sustainably without destroying water (for 5 million people) and biodiversity is seriously questionable and untrue. We are urging government to take Atewa forest out its bauxite mining plans because it provides water to over 5 million people. #SaveAtewa4Water #SDG6
"In our quest to develop, our beautiful lands and rivers are under threat. We are degrading our environment at an alarming rate. Once beautiful and thick forests have been denuded of their cover. Once majestic and all inspiring water bodies have been polluted and many of the animals no longer have safe habitats."
