“Welcome to beautiful downtown Mossville. Population: one,” says Stacey Ryan. Mossville, Louisana is a shadow of its former self – a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people, where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, however, Mossville no longer resembles what it once was. Surrounded by 14 petrochemical plants, Mossville is the future site of apartheid-born South African-based chemical company Sasol’s newest $21 billion plant. At the center of it all is Stacey Ryan. A lifelong resident of Mossville, Ryan has lost both parents to cancer and seen the neighborhood he grew up in demolished to make way for Sasol’s new project. He is the last man standing in the way of the plant’s expansion, refusing to leave.
