Communiqué After 50 days of Occupation in Zurawlow, Poland

26 Jul

from Occupy Chevron

polandoccupychevronIt has been 50 days since the start of the protest against Chevron’s activities by residents in Zurawlow, Rogow and Szczelatyn, Poland. Since then, they have successfully blocked the access to the land leased by Chevron where the shale gas extraction was planned to be carried out.

During that time, farmers had arranged meetings with various officials, ranging from local municipality administrators down to Ministry of Environment. Unfortunately, all of the meetings and discussions failed to meet demands of the protesters.

Protesters are being supported by activists from all over the world. We are deeply appreciative of your support. Simultaneously, we would like to ask you for direct support. At this time of the year the most important period (field harvesting) for farmers begins, thus it is crucial for us your presence at the site of the protest. Only your support, joint actions and solidarity gives us a chance to reach victory.

    On Monday 5/8/2013 we have official inquiry against corruption in Polish Ministry of Environment. Case is in court of second instance (heavy crap). There is allegation of bribery for polish authorities from… foreign energetic corporations in gas excavation bids.

    It was relatively big headline in polish media. However it can`t change horrible attitude of central government. Flog them.
