This huge fertilizer plant was hardly touched when I entered it for the first time in the beginning of 2004. There was hardly any vandalism, and graffiti or tagging was nowhere to be found. Control panels were rusted but intact and desks and workbenches were slowly rotting and collapsing under their own weight. Moss covered the floors of the engine rooms where idle tools were rusting in the tool racks and spare parts are still waiting to be used. Even the keys were hanging neatly on their cranky old hooks.
But things are changing in SAFEA, and my heart was bleeding when on a recent visit I could see graffiti appear and saw things had been destroyed on purpose.

The end draws near for this beautiful fertilizer plant. Taggers have entered the place and left their markings, local thieves are stealing the valuable copper of the transformers and the electrical switchboards. Soon only the disemboweled carcass of SAFEA will remain. Then the workers come to destroy what's left. Pictures of the last days: coming soon.
