Request an independent Health Impact Assessment for the Guaíba Mine project

Six medical societies and two health societies from Rio Grande do Sul issued technical opinions requesting an independent Health Impact Assessment (HIA) in accordance with WHO (World Health Organization) criteria for the coal mining project at the Guaíba Mine (see the dossier here).
AMRIGS (Medical Association of Rio Grande do Sul) has also positioned itself (read here) about the risks that the Guaíba Mine project can offer to health. Join them and sign the petition for the HIA.
