TKCSA – sem licença para operar, com permissão para poluir
How come that a firm which now is being prosecuted in a criminal case, accused of severely damaging people’s health and well-being, as well as the biodiversity around the Sepetiba Bay, Rio de Janeiro, be at sale? Financed with public money, ThyssenKrupp’s Atlantic Steel Company (CSA, in portuguese) has been operating since 2010. Although it’s still far from complying with Brazilian laws, now the company will have a new owner. And we ask ourselves: which kind of benefits can local residents and fishermen communities expect from this sale? What is the guarantee that CSA’s new owners will abide by, and finally accept, the rule of Brazilian law?
