  1. C’est ce qui se passe chez nous à Gabès( Tunisie) où les usines polluent l’atmosphère et le sol. La culture et la mer sont détruites. Les nappes d’eau sont exploitées à nos dépens. Les habitants souffrent de multitudes maladies très graves tel le cancer et la fracture ” gabesienne”. Ces usines s’enrichissent sur notre compte.

    • Are all these polluting factories in Gabès Tunisian-owned, or are some of them also foreign owned? If some are foreign owned, then maybe environmental groups in the owners’ countries might help.
