Two years ago, about the same time, our public thanks to the initiative of civil society (environmental NGOs) were able to be included in an essential way to reasoned public dialogue about the implementation, as it turned out, inadequate plan construction of four dams on the Moraca.
Regardless of inappropriate media campaign that was funded for everyone in our region renowned centers of power and attempted manipulation by the general public (over) paid to local and foreign experts, it turns out, however, in Montenegro can find people who are non-party figures who certainly have the knowledge and the will to rise in defense of the public interest.
I must admit that at the first conference organized by colleagues from the Green Home, at which I presented the position, not just the parent organization of inadequate awareness of the general public about the benefits that citizens / Montenegro will have the potential of building 4 dam Moraca stomach felt that our advocacy on the protection of the public interest will be the biggest test to date. And most of the time are the same centers planned sinking of Tara. Greater and the fight for the filters in the plant.
Why in the stomach, it will ask perhaps some of you, who, despite their daily struggle for survival have little time and enough will read this publicly expressing my thinking?
The answer would be - because at that point, really afraid that the ordinary citizen / s story on the protection of the public interest like the selling of the fog, and we all environmental activists - a group of fanatics that are more important to birds, reptiles and fish from people who do not understand the real problems such as. arrears with electricity or utilities or other bills that have to be a (too) often have no where to pay. In other words, I was not sure if we have strong stomach to digest a lot of the complex story of the proper use of hydropower.
To my great happiness, that feeling lasted for a very short time. And then something called optimism prevailed again, and I was convinced that the ecology of the mind just be the springboard for the substantial growth of democratic consciousness in our longer so young an ecological state. Of course the long term, because I firmly believe that nothing good comes not overnight. For all the quality needed the entire process, and Switches on sustainable planning, which is proven to the plan lacked.
Unfortunately for us, I'm afraid you are just starting isplivavati plans which sustainability from the beginning was unsustainable.
That is why I want to share with you the horror of the theory that all cities will be shut down if the people / Montenegro will stop returning other people's debts, paying someone else's bills and others application. All these stories about famous reproduction chains, to small and medium-sized enterprises fully resting on the fallen and the free EU market unprepared industrial complex for decades have used and believe fully explored and exploited. Same as our industrial complexes trentno used for any purpose more than the public interest. Just like the various profiteers who are always there when the show online (or contracts).
If you want to discuss the arguments and not gamble with our fate, it is necessary to carefully plan the concept of future and sustainable development and take into account all the natural resources that can be used wisely and properly. First of all, food. That in the last 20 years means that we pay other people's debts and mounting bills, invest in agricultural production, I think it will not be the only one who believes that today they would be in a much better position and that the unemployment rate was lower and the standard of health and much zavidnijem level.
It finally gives the cue to end this story closely and clarify the title.
In fact, one of the local experts in the study of impact assessment construction of up to four dams will have to go, among other things, fish, pointed to a fascinating detail - we do not know how many people live in Montenegro from fishing. About how much is the money turns, analyzes how this segment is introduced into the legal framework or evaluation of existing repro chain no accurate official data.
Why? Well, because it is much easier, sell fog "than to build a serious development plans. Because it is easier to incorporate themselves into some izakulisne actions than in a process that will allow some future generations to live better than we do.
Carp to say proved to be durable species. It survived even Mojkovac tailings.
We people of the Balkans, we have survived a variety of natural and unnatural disasters.
I pay and pay someone else's debts, bills, installation ...
If you want to invest in the future of your children, I hope that you will recognize it for what it is worth (the) fight.
