(en) Greece, APO, dirty horse: Photo-trip from the Autonomous Match Meeting in Acheloos (Messochora, Trikala, 9-14 August 2018) (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Aug 2018 12:26:07 +0300

From 9 to 14 August, on the banks of Acheloos, Mesochora of Trikala, for the 12th consecutive year, the Independent Meeting of the Struggle Against Dams and the Diversion of the River took place. ---- The endangered demolition of the Acheloos River through the autonomous operation of the Y / D dam in Mesohora, the Y / C plant and the artificial reservoir in its uppermost region - which had been left untouched - and its diversion to a next from its natural catchment area to Thessaly will bring incalculable disasters both in the mountain valleys, the natural ecosystems and human settlements in the mud, and the vulnerable delta of its estuary in the Ionian Sea where spliced unique wetlands. Note that the entire village of Messochora, Trikala, is planned to be expropriated by PPC and evacuated, while much of it, like other riparian settlements, will be flooded by the waters of the artificial reservoir.

Today, this disastrous prospect for the region is more visible since the construction of the giant Y / D dams in the late 1980s. The current government of SYRIZA-ANEL, fully aligned with the neo-liberal antisocial plundering policies of the natural world and the world of work, imposed by all previous governments, the EU and the IMF, which includes the completion of the Y / Y projects and the privatization they have completed the decommissioning procedures of the Messochora Y / Y dam from the total project of diversion, which has been temporarily blocked by the SEF to operate immediately.
