(en) Greece, Thessaloniki Libertarian Initiative: NTUA intervention in Volos town hall against waste incineration [VIDEO]

Date Tue, 15 Oct 2019 09:59:48 +0300


~ On Wednesday morning, 9/10/2019, we intervened with paints in Volos Town Hall against burning garbage. The following is our communication in which we take on political responsibility for our intervention. ~ ---- NOT IN WASTE DISPOSAL. NOT ON THE CANCER THAT DESTROYS ---- Let's destroy capitalism before it destroys the planet ---- For the past four years, one of the most unthinkable crimes against public health and the environment has been committed in the city of Volos. Aget Heraklis (of the French-Swiss multinational Lafarge - Holcim), located just a few meters outside the city, has been able to obtain authorization to burn 200,000 tonnes of rubbish (RDF) annually, with medical supplies coming in. Of course, these will be exploited as fuel in the context of the supposed 'development', which is nothing more than the accumulation of supranational profits in the hands of the multinational. It is well known that burning garbage alone is a harmful process, even if the most modern means are used. However, AGET did not bother to use the "most modern means": it burns in an obsolete plant. As if that weren't enough, the filters are removed from the chimneys in the evening, leaving the majority of the houses literally smelling "plastic", and when there is even a little bit of beaufort, then pieces of burnt plastic "meet" with the residents on their balconies. . Incinerated waste and waste contain RDF and SRF, the combustion of which releases substances whose inhalation can cause serious illnesses (such as cancer, genetic mutations, etc.).

The fact that AGET irreparably damages the environment, people and animals, having the backs of the Greek state and local government, is no surprise. AGET submitted an application for authorization in 2013. Initially, the Thessaly Regional Council gave a favorable opinion to the Ministry of the Environment in 2014 and to give final approval to the request. From all this, the headquarters of the municipality of Volos, which covers and perpetuates the above situation, could not be missing. At the heart of this curious newly-formed staff is the archbishop of Volos, Achilles Beos. At the same time, therefore, when the staff is being trampled on for Christmas lights and new fountains, he is setting up arrangements under the table with AGET, and the creation of a special SRF production facility in the landfill of Volos is in the works, with the municipality abusing an envelope of € 41 million intended for a waste treatment and recycling plant. In all of this, the EU comes and takes a position by rewarding AGET for its work, providing generous funds for its financial support. As always, the state, the state and capital are united in their indifference to the health of the inhabitants, but also to the irreversible damage to the environment, as hundreds of thousands of lives can be sacrificed for them on the altar of profit. providing her generous funds for her financial support.

We could not comment on the many times that the municipality has characterized this exclusion as a form of alternative fuels. In the last few weeks and days, the issue of waste incineration in Thessaloniki has come up again. The issue of burning waste is a key choice of the ND government, which has come to pursue SYRIZA's policy on the issue, which has paved the way for licensing to AGET in Volos. In addition, it is a key profitability option for capital, as through the SRF-RDF combustion industries provide cheap energy production, without of course taking into account the environmental costs and health effects.

Citizens 'initiatives, collectives, workers' unions, occupations, student organizations, scientific organizations have given a significant presence of resistance to the continuous - and not just economic - devaluation of our lives. The fight against the local mafia and its associated capital is not easy. This dynamic movement needs to be massed, as the current situation calls for the initiatives of all residents to be supported. The state has shown its face since the first mobilizations, after trying to suppress the action of the inhabitants with tramping, wood and arrests. The people who have chosen to fight do not put it down, having carried out a series of actions and interventions with marches, microphones, and demonstrations in the city councils, in the GCC itself,

The lack of state and capital for extra profit will always lead to environmental catastrophes and even a deterioration of our own health. Whether it's mining gold, hydrocarbons, or burning garbage, we all have to stand united in the face of the common enemy. Putting embankments in capital plans, preventing them from sacrificing our lives to fill their pockets.

Our only weapon is the unbroken, uneducated, self-organized struggle. The solidarity we show each other as we boil together in the same cauldron. Popular self-energy can create the torrent that will drown out those who plunder our nature and our lives. That is why we have to show confidence in our collective strengths and come together on the basis of our common material needs and interests.

Protect the environment. Not to let our lives be stolen, not to let anyone ruin our health. The race that has begun in Volos concerns us all!
