NGOs march to demand protection of Atewa Forest from mining

group of civil society organisations marched in Accra to protest against the mining of bauxite in the #Atewa Forest.

Together with members of the general public, the CSOs poured onto the streets of Accra to peacefully protest government’s plan to mine bauxite in the Atewa Forest.

The group says mining of bauxite in commercial quantities could have dire consequences on the forest which serves as home to some endangered wildlife and also as a source of water for most rivers across the country.

One of the conveners of the Coalition against mining in Atewa, Darly Bosu, said this was only one of many activities planned to get the government to rescind the decision.

The group presented their petition to the Majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu who promised to address the issue in due time.
