PUSL.- Since August this year activists in New Zealand have consistently been protesting against the import of Phosphate originating from Western Sahara and illegally sold by Morocco.
Today the organization “Climate Justice Taranaki” padlocked the gate at the fertilizer factory Ravensdown, blocking trucks, in light of the company’s connections to many environmental and social issues, climate change being number one.
“We locked the gate here at Ravensdown today to highlight the fact that this company as it is, should be shut down… Ravensdown fertilizer is derived from gas, a fossil fuel, and ‘Blood phosphates’ taken from Western Sahara under military occupation. When used the fertilizer emits nitrous oxide which is a greenhouse gas 400 times worse than carbon dioxide.”
