Monday, 19 May 2014
MANADO- It is fine that North Sulawesi Provincial Government promotes the campaign of coastal and marine preservation as the essence of WCRC (World Coral Reef Conference) International event. But among environmentalist, WCRC is none other than deception to international public. Even the government of regency/municipality assessed to be ambivalent. This local activist sees the existence of the unsynchronized between the spirit of international event which has been held in North Sulawesi, while on the other side, legalization for the destruction of environmental ecological bases even continue to occur. They take the most factual sample of mining activity in Bangka Island, which was definitely defeated in the Supreme court but the company’s activities are still going on in this region.

An environmental NGO on Monday reported seven mining firms to Environment Minister Gusti Hatta Radjasa, accusing them of polluting farms and water supplies vital to hundreds of residents based near the companies’ operations. “The ministry should conduct an investigation into water polluting in the area as soon as possible because hundreds of families have no access to clean water,” newly-elected Jatam coordinator Andrie S. Wijaya said Monday. He said Gusti had the authority to order regents to halt operations of mining companies deemed to be causing environment damage.
