(en) Czech, afed.cz: Serbia: Anarchists are wary of the destruction of the river system [machine translation]

Date Sat, 2 Feb 2019 09:46:23 +0200

The corporations are busting the Balkans, and the states are on their way. "Država is organized crime!" ---- This week, another wave of protests against the construction of a hydropower network is taking place in Serbia, which would have a devastating impact on the river system. Local anarchists and anarchists organize several events. The rich network of flows not only in Serbia has been a long-lasting year in the eye of non-food entrepreneurs in the field of hydro power engineering. There are plans to build three thousand works, one third of which is located in protected areas. Critics of a large project warn of destruction of the river system, ecosystems, drinking water supplies, as well as negative impacts on local communities.
In November, protesters achieved a significant victory. The Serbian government under pressure has drawn up a proposal to stop construction of hydropower plants in protected areas. This month should go through the first reading in Parliament. The ignorant argue that the law should cover a third of all flows in the country. Concerns are compounded by increasing pressure from multinationals, especially Russian corporations, who see profits without risk in the construction of power plants. Lobbyists in law enforce legal loopholes and seek to limit the extent of protected streams. New projects are being promoted in other Balkan countries.

Serbia has recently visited Vladimir Putin together with representatives of Russian business. The Papalas have signed more than twenty cooperation and investment treaties. It was signed a memorandum of cooperation and broader Russian investments in hydroelectricity and managers Siloviye Mashiny Corporation signed an agreement to extend the hydroelectric power plant Djerdap second

Destruction of the river system does not only concern Serbia. Entity Bosnia and Herzegovina The Republika Srpska on 24 January published plans for the construction of two new water works. Last week, there was also protest in Strpce, Kosovo, where earthworks for another hydropower plant began. Protests broke the police. The energy concern Matkos Group plans five projects in the area.
