In Italy one in five people die from pollution. Research by the World Health Organisation and CNR has found no particular differences between a gas chamber and the cities of Turin and Milan. Heavy metals, ozone, benzene, fine dust, nano particles. Every day a good breath of fresh air. Eight million Italians live in zones with environmental risk.
In certain cities, the European maximum annual pollution limits are already surpassed after a few months. And nobody does anything. It’s considered normal that a child gets ill with leukemia from exhaust gases. That there are no cycle paths.
Hell fire and damnation to the mayors, the bicycles is the fastest means of transport in a city and it’s less polluting. Incinerators, car parks that attract the cars like shit does for flies. Lack of information for the citizens about the risks they are running, no electric bus. I want to see the Mayors going to the Town Hall by bicycle. Stick the blue cars just there.
Claim back the city. Hundreds, thousands of you, get on your bike. Clean up the territory. Sign up to Critical Mass.
I’ve been at Acerra, people were crying, dying from tumours. The incinerator, the death factory, stood against a hellish sky. Enough. I’m too angry. Get on with it. Get on with it. Listen to Paul Connet, specialist in environmental chemistry.
Recycling is possible. We’ve got 76% in 22 towns in the province of Treviso, 83% in Capannori (Lucca) and 67% in Novara. Tell your mayors to move their backsides and imitate them.
