Oil, Chapter 2 / Regina Coyula

On July 8 I published a post about my alarm about the oil drilling practically at the entrance to Havana Bay. Well it turns out that a well between East Havana and Cojimar had to be sealed because of the leak of very dangerous sulfurous gas. The work being done in Mariel to “move” the commercial activity to the Port of Havana, the cleaning of the bay, including decommissioning the refinery, all with the idea of converting the capital’s harbor into a marina focused on tourist cruises and private pleasure boats, is in direct conflict with this unusual drilling.

The gas is toxic, full stop.
