Residents of the Aintap Altyn Uzum district, located at the foot of the Amanos Mountains in Western Armenia, blocked the road to the quarry and held a protest rally. The operation was carried out to draw attention to the damage caused by the “Islamic Bauxite Quarry” and the drilling organization owned by CTC, which has been operating since 2015. Through its activities, the company destroys nature and endangers the health of residents. Citizens noted that due to the organization, cancer cases have become more frequent in their area. According to them, vineyards and olive orchards have dried up especially, the quarry has a negative impact on farmland. Citizens are waiting for an appropriate reaction.
