The Burj Hammoud garbage mountain is being slowly dumped into the sea and no one’s doing anything to stop this catastrophe. In fact, there’s barely any mention of it on the news and it appears that people have come to accept this reality and that they’re not bothered by the horrifying amount of trash in our waters.
Last week’s Kalamennas report on the levels of pollution in our seas is horrifying to say the least and I can’t believe that there are still fishermen operating next to the Burj Hammoud dump. I can’t help but think that these fish are ending up in our plates in a way or another.
Again, I have no idea why this matter is not being given any importance and whether the Environment Minister is even aware of what’s happening.
