Talking about Environment is dangerous because you can lost your life. Green Blood is this phenomenon, Green for the Planet and blood it could be yours!
Talking about Environment is not the classic activist article against biggest multinationals to raise awareness of climate change. It is a declaration of acknowledgement, even worse. We cannot go any further, as can also be seen Fashion’s Companies are designing more sustainable clothes!
In the last ten years, 13 journalists were investigating on environmental damages by Big Companies have been killed and many others are still suffering from violence, mistreatment, intimidation and judicial persecution.
Only because they was acting against pollution!
Silence worths more than its gold! For North Mara Mine owned by Barrick Gold in Tanzania.
It’s Tanzania, the Africa state, whom has the highest numbers od Green Blood crimes against journalists:
- they suffer violence because they investigate the environmental damage caused by the gold mine in the north of the country.
- They are trapped between the forced silence of the proprietary company and the repressive lies of the local government.
”once they find the gold, they leave. and leave you with all their poison on your back”.
Lissu, the miner.
First of all. Why is environmental journalism to save the earth it’s so dangerous?
At least a dozen local and international reporters who wrote about the North Mara gold mine have been censored or abused. This is revealed by Forbidden Stories, the consortium of over 40 journalists active in 30 different organizations around the world.
The gold business is high yield because it concerns even the super high-tech phones that we want so much. The precious material being an excellent conductor for the high-speed data of small motherboards.
Forbidden Stories is a network of journalists spread all over the Planet who collaborate to publish and protect the future of those journalists who are threatened, imprisoned or who have lost their lives for their work.
Nowadays it is too dangerous today write on and take movies about environmental topics. The reporter Juliette Garside, (profilo twitter) with the editor Jonathan Watts, the Guardian’s environmental reporter, show us why journalists today are subjected to such levels of danger.
IF IN SOME COUNTRIES you TALK ABOUT BAD ENVIRONMENTAL BEHAVIOUR OF BIG COMPANIES THAT it could RISKS THEIR END , TO MAKE YOU SHUT UP THEY KILL YOU!
An association exists to protect journalists.
The Journalists Protection Committee is investigating on 16 other cases and claims that the number of homicides can reach 29.
So it would make this particular field of journalism, against the environmental crimes of big companies, one of the most dangerous after reporting during the Second World War.
