A Chinese fishmeal factory named Golden Lead based in Gunjur, The Gambia, has recently expanded their factory by grabbing land from women growing vegetables.
Activists in the region confirm that the community living nearby the fishmeal and fish oil factories has been exposed to constant air pollution for the past six years.
Golden Lead first expanded their factory in 2017 after building waste tanks and accommodation for their workers without notifying the community or conducting an environmental impact
Greenpeace Africa calls on The Gambian government to take concrete actions to stop the fishmeal factories expansion and fix the environmental problems.
Mustapha Manneh, is a local environmental activist who has been speaking to WADR about the situation.
