Though they presently exceed the accepted pollution levels by more than
twice with some contaminants, ISLA Oil recently announced their intent to
implement a substantial expansion project ($190 million) to their present
facilities while simultaneously assuring that their environmental pollution
by-products would decrease dramatically. Does anyone "really" believe that?
If you DO, we'd like to sell you a "bridge" we own in southern Arizona!

Cas Chikito (Netherlands Antilles), one of the most affected barrios,

"You have to know something is wrong when you can smell something bad long
before you can actually see it!!"

Upon seeing ISLA for the first time, one recent visitor from the U.S.
remarked "That's not an accident waiting to happen, it already is
happening... it's just that it's in slow motion!
