DO WE REALLY WANT TO TAKE SUCH A RISK?
The Ionian Sea is a small paradise. That’s how we feel it, most of the residents and visitors of the area. Those who know the area understand the natural beauty we are talking about, those who do not, we recommend you to visit it unreservedly.
Probably you have to hurry, as its future looks ominous. Black, like the oil that is hiding in its depths, and soon to surface as we begin mining it. All the Ionian sea area, from north to south and a vast area of the western greek mainland, have been divided into blocks and partly given to companies to exploit its mineral wealth.
Some say it is the only and the best choice! The inhabitants of the area, who will be directly affected, have never been asked. They are invited today (after signing the agreements!) to get informed officially by the companies about the profits of these investments for the region but also for our bankrupt country ...
We however, believe that our country - like any other country - is really poor when it loses its natural capital: fertile land, clean air, rich seas.
We worry and we share our concerns about oil drilling, since it has to do with all of us, wherever we are, wherever it takes place. We now know that by continuing to invest in fossil fuels, all we can do is speed up the effects of climate change. So we are wondering: Do we really want to see the worst of it? Do we really want to take such a risk?
We, have already answered. We say NO to oil drilling and we connect our voices with all those who believe that the oil age must come to the past if we want to have a chance of a better future.
