Judiciary, Governmental and Environmental Bodies (ZEMA)
We the people of Zambia want to put a stop to the mining operations which want to take place in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Lower Zambezi is a natural ecosystem, a delicate balance of wildlife and indigenous trees and plants. Under no circumstances can this be disturbed with mining activities, not to mention the devastation the toxic residue of such activities will bring to the soil and the rivers. Our forests have been cut down of precious timber, our rivers have been polluted with toxic waste from the mining and agricultural sector, our soils have been degraded with chemical fertilizers and our natural resources have been pillaged and are nearly at the point of depletion...now climate change is making our situation worse. Now more than ever we say.....now we say no more! Zambia is not for sale, never has been and never will be...We IMPI have have come together with our Zambian people and neighboring countries and have formed One Nation One Voice! The proposal of mining and exploration in our precious National Parks must be stopped.
