(en) Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki - Solidarity gatherings for persecuted anti-gold miners (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 23 Sep 2017 16:10:37 +0300

For some years, residents of Halkidiki and solidarity have been fighting together to prevent gold mining in Halkidiki and the subsequent destruction of the ecosystem of the wider region. So far, work on the construction of a site in Skouries and the opening of road networks have transformed the area around which construction works are being carried out to a skull site. Huge forest areas have been deforested, the mountain has eroded, and water springs have been infected. All this, without the mining being started yet. The mining itself is a lethal process that will release toxic substances and heavy metals, contaminating air, soil and subsoil, having devastating consequences for flora, fauna and, of course, for residents as well. Its devastating consequences will not be confined to Halkidiki. It is estimated that they will reach Thessaloniki and Central Macedonia.

Right now, El Dorado Gold says he will leave (3rd time in 3 years), stopping work on Squires and canceling the inauguration of mines in the Olympiad. It warns (threatening) the government that it will suspend its investment and gold-medal project in Halkidiki and Thrace. The Canadian company wants in this way to push the government towards satisfying all the lucrative conditions it has set itself. At the same time, of course, the drilling rig begins at new locations. One is located near "Vryssi Galatsanou" and the other two in the area of Tsikaras. The government, on the other hand, is a consensual observer who, through the issue of extraction permits,

The struggle for the emancipation of man from all forms of power and exploitation is integral to the cessation of the exploitation of nature by man. Capital, in order to be reproduced by the subduction of surplus value from human labor, undermines not only the world of production and the social base in general but also plunder the natural environment whose exploitation generates profits for the capitalists. The rampant and horizontal struggles aimed at ending the tyranny of the state and the capital, which aim to create self-directed free-productive communities, are those that will depend on the satisfaction of human needs with harmonious co-existence with nature. On the contrary, the assignment of hopes to the government (see SY.RIZ.A.
