Greek ecologists: solidarity from Yekaterinburg (Russia)

 

Event was held near the building of the visa center in Greece on November 9 at the day of United Action. Halkidiki is located in the north of Greece, and it is Aristotle’ homeland. This is one of the main recreational areas of the country, which is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Harming the environment, the
Eldorado Gold Company shows the hypocrisy and greed of capitalists. In the pursuit of profits, they will stop at nothing.

We believe that environmental problems - is the problems of all people in the world. Capital does not respect political boundaries. Polluting nature in one place, corporations harms the entire global ecosystem. So it is especially important to the world's environmental movement to strengthen its solidarity and support any struggle against the exploitation of nature.

We had 2 banners: "Solidarity with the people of Halkidiki" (Greek - ΑΛΛΗΛΕΓΓΥΗ ΣΤΟΥΣ ΚΑΤΟΙΚΟΥΣ ΤΗΣ ΧΑΛΚΙΔΙΚΗΣ), and "Ecology has no boundaries". There were also posters "Nature is more important than profits", "NO to contamination of Halkidiki", "Stop the Eldorado Gold", "Capitalists, hands off nature!"

During the pickets we distributed nearly 200 leaflets. Many people have been sympathetic to the problem. Some of them talked about pollution in their regions.

LET’S PROTECT THE ECOLOGY FROM CAPITALISM
NO TO CONTAMINATION! NEITHER IN HALKIDIKI, NOR IN ANY OTHER PLACE
