Ecological plunder preparation after the election

İZMİR - EGEÇEP Co-Spokesperson Süleyman Eryılmaz said that the government is preparing to expand the "ecological plunder after the election, and that the fight against plunder will get tougher.
The climate crisis started to make itself felt in the cities of Türkiye and Kurdistan with the summer season. On the one hand, citizens who are faced with a serious drought, on the other hand, are left alone with excessive rains that negatively affect their lives. As a result of the heavy rain that was effective in the Western Black Sea at the beginning of the week, the flood disaster occurred 2 years ago in Kastamonu and Bartın, which caused the same results to be experienced again. Again, due to the rains in the Aegean provinces, floods were experienced in many places. On the other hand, drought started to occur again, especially in the cities of Kurdistan.
However, despite all these effects, ecological plunders such as deforestation, agricultural and pasture lands are continuing at full speed. After the re-election of AKP Chairperson Tayyip Erdoğan as president on May 28, companies known as the 'five gang' took action again. Limak, which wants to open a coal mine in the Akbelen Forest in Muğla Milas, has increased its pressure against the ecologists who are on guard duty. In Samsun Ladik district, the work of the industrial zone, which is intended to be built in the pasture area of the villagers, has been accelerated.
We talked to the Aegean Environment and Culture Platform (EGECEP) Co-Spokesperson Süleyman Eryılmaz about ecological plunder and his struggles against it. Emphasizing that a difficult election process was going through, Eryılmaz said: "The AKP came back to power with all its brute force. Ecological destruction will continue at an accelerated pace from now on. The defenders of life who struggle with ecology should position themselves accordingly. The past process was a tough one, but it is clear that we will face a much more difficult process ahead. The fight will be hard. We understand this from the first days that we are told that we will enter the Akbelen Forest. They say, 'We won everything.' It's time to show more solidarity and fight together. It will cause Turkey, whose economy was seriously damaged after the elections, to turn to the situation of extracting and selling coal and fossil fuels. That's why it gets both complicated and tough. Unfortunately, if we can't stop it from turning into a disaster, there will be no nature left."
