Shocking photos – taken at the risk of life

“It’s the only water that we have.” South Sudanese are forced to use water that they know has been contaminated with oil wastes – often from rain fall washing pollutants into rivers

Shocking photo – one taken at the risk of life. This pit is full of lead, barium, salts and other oil wastes – which will make their way into South Sudan’s water and on to its land – and thus into millions of victims’ bodies

Abandoned chemicals – one huge source of contamination in South Sudan. Just another way in which oil companies show that they simply don’t care about humanity. Photo taken by We Are Witness network of frontline, courageous journalists
