TweetThis! Flash of a toxic spill at the Barrick Mara mine in Tanzania.

Major emergency at Barrick's North Mara mine, Tanzania
It is reported that there has been a major spill of toxic sludge from Barrick's Mara mining operation into River Thigithe that flows into the Mara River. This happened Monday the 11th of May and nearby residents have reported that there are dead fish and all kinds of other dead water life along the river. The entire community is in a huge uproar and panic. People are very scared in the whole area. There is a need for journalists to go and report on this story, and for scientific investigation of this spill to know what the poisons are and how widely they are spread.

Meanwhile people are organizing to take samples of the water and the fish for testing.
