Smelter as planned would destroy heritage site

RRR was reliably informed today that the planned conversion of the South Western region of the Caribbean island of Trinidad (Republic of Trinidad & Tobago) for the SMELTER projects will erase many community facilities and places of worship. It will also destroy a cherished historic former free slave settlement known affectionately as Bourg Congo.

With mass displacement of several thousand local residents planned, here again is further proof that not only Human's safety and Health is at risk, but even the Cultural Heritage would be affected.
Opposition to these plans is gaining momentum across the country. Readers will be kept informed of related developments.
