Protest by the “Environmental Alert Zakynthos” group in regards to the illegal sale of the Navagio.

Group head Marinetta Paganopoulou has written a few thoughts of her own within the Environmental Group.  Her thoughts are in regard to the 15,000 acres of land that is in question in the vicinity of the area known as “Navagio”

Stating on her face book page:-

 Reflections on the ILLEGAL shipwreck

We can have a funeral at the wreck we killed ourselves!

1) The shipwreck and the 15,000 acres already have been sold to Pimana.

2) We don’t know if Pimana is owned by the Emir or our neighbour.

3) The shipwreck was sold because Zakynthos is the island of the “blind” and swamped by those on the take

 So if we are looking for who sold the shipwreck let’s look in the mirror. We sold our place. We mess it up, we destroy it.

 One question? Socrates, Christ, Che, Gandhi, Kapodistrias, Kolokotronis and in general who had the soul to try to do good for their home, who killed them? Their own!

 Conclusion: humanity does not want to be saved. We can do a funeral at the wreck we killed ourselves. Let’s just make a little noise. Let us complain about our lost homeland, for our loss.

 Marinetta Panagopoulou.

 

A protest rally is being organised for Wednesday 5th February, 2020 at 6.30p.m outside the Regional Offices, located in Alexander Roma Street.
