A DEVASTATING FILM ON GALAMSEY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6qaiPSbZsQ

CONGRATULATIONS TO EDEM SREM AND GIFTY APPIAH ON AN EXCELLENT PRODUCTION WHICH SHOULD HAVE MADE THE GOVERNMENT OF GHANA STOP ”GALAMSEY” THE MOMENT THIS FILM WAS SEEN BY ANYONE IN POWER. WHO IS ABLE OR WILLING TO HALT THE DESTRUCTION OF GHANA’S WATER BODIES BY GALAMSEY? WHO, I ASK, WHO?

if we continue to allow this, our children’s children will grow up to curse us for being the most stupid BEINGS on earth — creatures who sit down and watch whilst their country’s very lifeline is destroyed by greedy gold-diggers. We want the Government to halt it, right? But if it is too callous to do it, why should we sit down and allow it to go on? Where has PEOPLE’S POWER fled to in Ghana? In Egypt and Tunisia, they put their lives on the line for political gains. Here, we are losing the very right to exist! And yet, people watch films like this, tut-tut and just get up and go home. To do nothing….. Is this the Ghana where “”OSEEEEE YEEEEE” WAS BORN AND NURTURED? — CAMERON DUODU.

    KOFI ELLISON:I have not watched the video yet. But I guess it will be no different from one shown by Al Jazeera that I watched in Ghana, on a Ghana TV station in February 2010. It was shown around midnight. It was a video about Galamsey and how rivers and river bodies were being destroyed in our country. The video showed how the mighty Pra River has turned “Ntwoma”…RED. The remarkable thing was at Shama where the Pra empties into the Atlantic Ocean. There is folk story that Pra considered itself so strong, it refused to be subsumed by the mightier ocean, so for nearly a mile, Pra cuts across the ocean, until it finally loses strength and is gulped by the ocean. The sight of the now distinct ‘red’ River Pra fighting for survival in the ocean epitomizes the destruction of Ghana’s ecosystem.

    I recall Mahama setting up a ‘commission’ to investigate Galamsey. I reckon, like all of his ‘commissions’, it’s report has never been made public, nor acted upon.

    Just last week, there a news item that the government of Ghana is now allowing underground mining in forest reserves.

    Is Ghana not a moron country………

    CAMERON DUODU: Know what, Obosomfo? We actually do have a whole “Water Resources Commission””!!… Plus an Environmental Protection Agency…. A Ministry of Mines. A Ministry of the Interior (to prevent crime, which MUST include crimes that harm the people’s health!). A Ministry of Defence (that must defend the people of Ghana against any activities that can deprive them of their lives, such as war and/or destruction of their means of livelihood and of life itself.) We also have a Ministry of Lands and Forestry. Environmental devastation ruins the land and the forests. Depriving the land the forests of the draining provided by rivers, of course, kills the land the forests stone dead. That is what we are sitting down and watching happen!
