Dali residents draft timeline for removal of polluting factories

Dali residents demanding the establishment of a timeline for the removal of two polluting asphalt-making factories near primary schools of the municipality have drafted an action plan.

The first step to be taken is another mass protest outside one of the factories on March 7, followed by legal measures jointly reviewed by the residents and Dali Municipality.

The action plan was announced by the Movement for the Quality of Life after an open meeting on Tuesday evening at one of the affected schools.

In the meantime, the residents are waiting to see the measures to be taken by an inter-ministerial committee that  was set up back in October to tackle the issue. The Committee comprises four ministries.

School children have been facing this problem for a long time, with gases and fumes from the factories affecting their health and quality of life. Incidents of headaches, dizziness, sore throat, cough and retching have been systematically reported.

In addition to the two measures already announced, the residents are also considering the possibility of taking this issue before the European Parliament.
