SASOL expands its US operations into a historic community of freed slaves in Louisiana

Black history and heritage are being bulldozed by South Africa's SASOL which has received EPA go-ahead to annually spew the largest tonnage of carbon dioxide from its gas-to-liquid facility into the environment.

Mossville in Louisiana is the site of the massive expansion of a SASOL gas-to-liquid facility. SASOL has secured permits allowing it to expropriate those who have rejected approaches to sell their properties to SASOL to date.

The rejection of local residents is completely understandable given the history of the small town as having been established by the very first generation of freed slaves in the United States.
