USA: Residents seek remedy from Sasol for environmental injustice in Mossville, Louisiana; incl. co. responses

A blog authored by the Concerned Citizens of Mossville, University of Utah Environmental Justice Clinic, and the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic on behalf of Carolyn Peters, Raphael Sias, Ronald Carrier, Larry Allison, Karl Prater, McKeever Edwards, Patricia Charles, Stafford Frank, and Peggy Anthony, describes environmental racism as a result of the expansion of a nearby chemical complex owned by Sasol. Mossville, Louisiana is a predominantly Black community founded by formerly enslaved people and forms part of 'Cancer Alley', a stretch of land along the Mississippi River in Louisiana with a large concentration of petrochemical factories and refineries where residents have a higher cancer risk than other parts of the United States.

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre reached out to Sasol to respond to allegations in the blog post. Sasol's responses and rejoinders from the blog authors are linked below.
