Dar Allouche and Hawaria are witnessing an environmental disaster
Dar Allouche is a region located in North Tunisia known for the beauty of its landscapes and the breath-taking nature.
However today, the region's air becomes unbreathable, the water undrinkable and the beauty of nature is brutally taken.
Nowadays, both of Dar Allouche and Hawaria are witnessing an environmental disaster which is the leakage of polluted water from factories and sewage along dozens of hectares of cultivated lands.
This is a real environmental disaster of a large scope causing:
Impure air for breathing.
The damage of many agricultural areas.
No water suitable for irrigation and use.
The pollution of 14 wells.
The damage of 7 markets in Tunisia and even more it represents a very serious menace to the consumers ‘health due to the threat of carcinogenicity of tones of corps and vegetables.
Hence, all of these statistics and data unveil the gravity of the situation in Dar Allouche and Hawaria as well as it implies a clear violation to the UNSDG's as it goes against all the international conventions within the vein of environmental protection policy.
In this regard, here I am on behalf of my family, my neighbors and all the habitats in Dar Allouche and Hawaria address an urgent call with an alarming tone to the minister of Environment and Local Affairs, the civil society, all the NGO's and Human Rights associations in Tunisia and even at the international sphere to take action to:
Stop the spread of leakage water from factories.
Connect the city to the sanitation network.
Oblige factories such as SOCODAL and STICAP to establish treatment plants.
Conduct the necessary analysis of water wells.
Thereby, we have a dream that 2020 will mark the end of Dar Allouche and Hawaria's nightmare as we believe that the promotion of human rights goes hand in hand with environmental rights.
