Two petitions regarding Rosia Montana to be discussed in the European Parliament this week

October 2, 2011

On Tuesday, Oct 4th 2011, two petitions regarding Rosia Montana will be discussed in the European Parliament.

One of the petitions is issued by Sorin Jurca from Rosia Montana, a representative of the locals resisting in Rosia Montana, the other by Ad Astra, an association of Romanian scientists:

Petition 622/2010 by A.I.C. (Romanian), on behalf of Ad Astra, an association of Romanian scientists, on alleged infringement of Community legislation in connection with the Roşia Montană gold mine project (Romania)
(in the presence of the petitioner)

and

Petition 628/2011 by Sorin Jurca (Romanian), on behalf of the Roșia Montană Cultural Foundation, regarding the damaging effects on the environment caused by the Roșia Montană gold mine project (Romania)
(in the presence of the petitioner)

Both petitions will be discussed in the presence of their petitioners.

The Romanian public television broadcasted an announcement that mentioned only one of the two petitions, the petition issued by the Ad Astra association, without any mention regarding the petition issued by the locals in Rosia Montana.
The news was accompanied by footage of polluted waters, meant to induce the idea that Rosia Montana is, anyway, already polluted. (Recently, the Romanian President was caught lying, in the attempt to induce the same idea.)

Here is some footage of Cornei Valley, a valley that, if the mining project would be done, would be transformed in a cyanide lake.
