Massive protest in Bor over pollution Izvor: N1

Citizens in the northeastern town of Bor are protesting against the excessive pollution, claiming it has intensified since the Chinese company Zidjin became the majority owner of the copper mining and smelting complex, RTB Bor, at the end of 2018.

Protesters say that sulfur dioxide pollution is often higher than the legally prescribed 350 micrograms per cubic meter.

Masses have gathered at the entrance into the town and are heading toward the Zidjin company. Participants said they will not give up on their demands and will continue to fight for clean air, arguing that it represents a “plea for life.”

Last week, the mayor of town filed a criminal complaint against Zidjin, and two days ago, the Chinese company suspended the operation of its smeltery due to repairs.
