Fifty families of fishermen live in
Yanglingang village, at the border between Jiangsu province and Shanghai. They fish for their livelihood and have drunken water from the Yangtze for decades.
In the last few years, however, the river has been significantly polluted, and the fishermen noticed that the water has a strange flavor. Since 2003, factory construction has erupted all around Yanglingang. Today the little fishing village is surrounded by power plants, paper-making factories, and chemical plants. Greenpeace together with photographer Lu Guang documented the life and death of this community living "under the pipe". The water that flows beneath the fishing boats is the same wastewater discharged from the factories, and the air that fishermen breathe is the same acrid, metallic air polluted by the factories.
Greenpeace is calling for the end of the toxic water pollution.
