Liberia environmentalists blame Firestone for river pollution

Liberia has struggled to deal with environmental challenges.
The 2020 Environmental Performance Index ranked it the worst performing country when it comes to sustainability.
Liberia’s Guinean forest region is often referred to as “the lungs of West Africa”.
But inside the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company’s Liberian concession, the air is so thick with chemicals, it stings the eyes.

Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque reports from the outskirts of the capital, Monrovia.
