MUĞLA - Gendarmerie and forestry directorate employees, who came to the resistance area of the villagers who have been resisting against the coal mine intended to be built in the Akbelen Forest for 2 years, wanted to keep a report about the containers.
It was requested to keep a report about the tents of the villagers who have been fighting for 2 years against the coal mine that is wanted to be opened in the Akbelen Forest in the Milas district of Muğla. Teams from the Gendarmerie and the Regional Directorate of Forestry made a parcel inquiry in the area last night. The villagers evaluated such an attack as "intimidation" right after the statement made against coal-fired power plants with dozens of ecologists from different provinces in the morning.
İkizköy Environment Association President Nejla Işık stated that they wanted to keep a report about the container that has been in the area for 2 years. We will not."
'LAWS IS NOT IMPLEMENTED'
The villagers' lawyer, İsmail Hakkı Atal, noted that the laws have not been implemented in Akbelen for a long time. Stating that he detected coal being mined at the very beginning of the olive groves, Atal said: "According to the Olive Law, it is forbidden to approach the olive grove more than 3 kilometers, but we saw that they were doing this 50 meters away. The gendarmerie and the Forestry Directorate who condoned this intimidated us. We protect the forest from foresters. The violator of the Olive Law does not interfere with Limak. But we will report to Limak again tomorrow. If the prosecutors do not do their duty, we will also complain about them. Laws are not enforced in Milas. Milas District Governorship, Milas prosecutors commit crimes by violating the Constitution. We are here. Whoever comes, we will resist until the end."
