Although medicines are affected on a large scale, the establishment of new industries far away from those to be supplied is pushed forward, regardless of the known serious effects on the environment and the health of the inhabitants.

We call for a serious turnaround from the „now“ to a better future, in a responsible turn towards the needs of the citizens.
