Petition Preserve Tamarin Salt Fields

Petition Preserve Tamarin Salt Fields

Postby stefan » Thu Apr 23, 2015 12:34

Here at have Alvina Carcary a petition started to Preserve Tamarin Salt Fields


Located at the foot of the Black River Mountain Range, the Tamarin salt fields date back to the French era. This cottage industry has barely changed over time and is not only an active salt producer, and a top-rated tourist attraction, but is an integral part of the national fabric. And yet, it would seem steps are already in motion for the salt pans to be covered in tar as a mere supermarket car park. We will not make mention as to how members of the Mauritian public feel like they were duped by the lack of notice for appeal, or rather, the poor way in which said developments were communicated. But we will say this: this is not some naive, misguided, and misplaced attempt by a group of nostalgic Mauritians and sympathisers who just won't let go of the past and make way for economic growth and development. This is a furious plea, a desperate appeal, to save Mauritian identity and what the Tamarin salt mines represent to us as a nation. You may not care about our history, you may not care about our heritage, you may not care about our memories, or even about our very own Tamarin salt, but you will care about your identity.
