The “Communities in Action” initiative are organizing a protest on Tuesday outside the Agriculture Ministry where a meeting on the heated issue of transferring the toxic Prometheas Asphalt Ltd factory to Mitsero is scheduled.
“We will continue our struggle until justification, until this criminal decision is withdrawn. Measures will be getting stronger and stronger,” the protesters also said in a written statement on Monday.
The protesting communities are those of Ayia Marina, Ayios Epiphanios, Ayios Ioannis, Agrokipia, Arediou, Kalo Chorio Orini, Kato Moni, Klirou, Malounta, Menoikou, Mitsero and Orounda.
They repeatedly sent the message that they feel “abandoned by the state itself” and have no option but to protect their children themselves.
And that the state insists on moving the “death factory” next to their children.
The protesters also argue that the schools in Mitsero are closer to the set location for the asphalt plant than the Dali schools are to the current location of the asphalt plants.
