Pollution in South Sudan: human suffering through inhumane greed.

In 2018, I started reporting on oil pollution in South Sudan. I quickly learned that this entailed quite a bit more than merely gathering facts and comments, that it meant – quite literally – getting acquainted with the smells, sights and feel of poisoned water and land – and experiencing first-hand the suffering that it causes.

at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial Church Berlin

On September 30th, at 8 pm., in Berlin’s historic Gedächtniskirche,
the acclaimed Jocelyn B. Smith and the Choir of Redemption and other musical groups  will sing “Black Tide”.

The song born from South Sudan’s struggle to free itself from the ‘black tide’ of oil pollution – 
the song which is becoming the anthem for clean water and for a healthful environment and a socially-just world.
