Massive protest in Tetovo: Stop to carcinogen pollution
Citizens from Tetovo and Gostivar, no matter of their political, ethnical, religious or other affiliation, today have gathered on a massive protest in Tetovo to express their revolt against carcinogen pollution.
The protest has been organised by the movement “Eco Guerrilla”, and were initiated by the last Government decision to prolong the deadline for factory “Jugohrom” so it can satisfy the ecological standards.
According to the organisers, “Jugohrom” is the biggest polluter for which the protestors seek to put the necessary filters, and not closing of the factory. The protestors announced activities towards the smaller polluters as well.
“I call on you not to leave alone the ones that we have voted, no matter if they are in opposition or position, municipality or ministry-they all should take responsibility for the destiny of this town and its’ citizens. We should seek from them to seriously approach this problem”, Arianit Xhaferi, from “Eco Guerlilla” stated.
