The victims of our wealth
(Stefano Stranges)

Si chiama Agbogbloshie, ma quando la cerchi, meglio chiedere di “Sodoma e Gomorra”,con quel nome la conoscono tutti. È la discarica nera dell’Occidente. Qui vengono bruciati, aperti, selezionati, riciclati e rivenduti. Per rientrare poi di nuovo nel ciclo della produzione e della vendita. Si calcola che ci vivano 80.000 persone, per lo più provenienti dal Nord e dalle aree più depresse del Ghana. Loro, le “vittime della nostra ricchezza” nella piramide dello sfruttamento dell’e-waste occupano solo il gradino più basso. “Mio figlio e la mia casa sono la cosa più preziosa che ho”, dice Rasheeda mentre orgogliosa ci apre la piccola porta della sua capanna fatta di scheletri di vecchi frigoriferi e tavole di legno. Ma qui le “case” cambiano ogni giorno. La scritta “Understanding the times” sul vecchio tetto di uno scuolabus usato come copertura di una casa, sembra infatti essere triste monito per molti di loro.
Muhammad, one guy of the community of the slum. Sunset in Sodom and Gomorrah. On the back the toxic fumes of the plastic and metals are burning, like every day.
