STRUGGLE COMMITTEE OF BODIES AND ASSOCIATIONS OF SOUTH KARYSTIA - PRESS RELEASE
Karystos, April 11, 2021
We were informed late tonight that in the long-awaited meeting with the Minister of Environment & Energy, Mr. Skrekas, on the disastrous investment for Evia of the company ELLAKTOR, the mayors of Karystos, Kymi-Aliveri and Eretria, were not finally invited by the Minister .
We denounce the tactic of the Ministry to claim as interlocutors only the three government deputies and the Regional Governor of Central Greece, indirectly despising the citizens and depriving them of the right to be represented by their mayors.
We ask the three parliamentary members and the Regional Governor to make it clear to the Minister that South Karystia does not accept any other wind turbines, other than the 413 already installed by August 7, 2020, as explicitly mentioned in the 92 / 7-8-2020 unanimous decision of the Municipal Council of Karystos.
Also, to request and ensure that a new meeting takes place within the current week, in which the Mayor of Karystos, the leaders of the Opposition and representatives of Associations and Bodies will participate.
Finally, we clarify in every direction that the only message we accept from the planned meeting, is the revocation of the Interministerial decision for the above investment and anything else will not be, in any case, compensation and means for our retreat to "NO OTHER" WIND TURBINES IN THE MUNICIPALITY OF KARYSTOS - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ”.
