A healthy environment is important to us, why?
It promotes a sense of well being
Positive unpolluted environments lead to positive motivated and proud citizens. A sense of well being ensures positive economic growth.
It preserves nature
Respect for nature and marine animals is paramount as we pass through this world. Nature and innocent lives should not be made to pay for our processes.
It improves overall well being
Manganism has been known about since the 19th century, when miners exposed to ores containing manganese, a silvery metal, began to totter, slur their speech and behave like someone inebriated. The poisoning was irreversible, and soon ended in psychosis and death.
What can you do?
Take part in our survey/petition
Honestly tell Transnet how badly they affect your environment, give an estimation of the actual cost to your assets and health as a result of the continued 40 year pollution from Manganese Ore Dust.
Share this page on Social Media
Tell as many people as possible that the Port Elizabeth Public is fighting back and needs to accurately and honestly present to our local and national government just how much 'hidden cost' takes place as a result of the Manganese Ore Dust Pollution.
Write to Government
Write to any local government representative. Tweet, poke, prompt every single government representative and Transnet employee - entreating them to stop polluting and to release the land as an aid to unblocking our economy in Nelson Mandela Bay.
