(en) Poland, rozbrat - Anarchist Federation section of Poznan: STATEMENT - AGAINST CUTTING DOWN TREES IN SUCHY LAS[machine translation]

Date Wed, 17 Jun 2020 09:11:35 +0300

Today (6.05) at 6:00 a group of ten activists associated with the "Green Wave" initiative and the Poznan Anarchist Federation conducted a direct civil disobedience action, organizing a blockade of felling trees located at Mlodziezowa Street in Suchy Las. In this way they want to thwart the possibility of continuing the felling, which without the consent of the residents and the commune began yesterday. Activists came to support the fight of the inhabitants of Dry Forest against the total felling of 65-year-old linden avenue. Yesterday almost all possibilities of legislative blocking of felling and a few weeks' protest of the inhabitants proved to be ineffective.

Keywords Dry forest Lipa sector Ecology Green wave
We would like to remind you that as part of the activities undertaken in recent weeks, the inhabitants have submitted to the commune head Grzegorz Wojter a petition against the logging, which was signed by 1,000 people.
Wojtera ignored the petition, further accelerated the start of the cut from Thursday to Tuesday! What's more, he declared that he also did not intend to delay the felling in any way, despite the fact that it was not until May 11 that an extraordinary session of the commune council was to be held, during which residents and councilors would be able to get acquainted with the project for the reconstruction of Mlodziezowa Street for the first time. According to residents, it can be renovated in a way that also assumes the protection of greenery in this place and is not associated with felling.

At this point, the last option that we have to stop work related to felling and to support the local community is to put pressure on the Poznan staroste to block the decisions taken (as a person holding a clerical position superior to the head of the commune head).

From the morning, being strapped to the trees, we demand that the starost come to the place and express a public declaration by him - which side is he advocating and whose interests are more important to him; whether its actions are going to protect and represent the inhabitants of Suchy Las, or the private arbitrary head of the mayor, of which even the councilors did not know. We demand the immediate cessation of work, leaving the lime trees still uncut and changing the road plan so that it takes into account the leaving of trees.

The trees we are fighting for were planted 60 years ago by primary school students located at the end of Mlodziezowa street. They have an additional sentimental value for the local community. They provide protection against the sun on hot days, natural tools to fight smog and global warming. Their presence also allows to preserve water in the ground, which is of great importance in the current drought in Poland. At the same time, it should be remembered that due to climate change and drought, new compensation plantings may not be accepted, which is why it is so important to leave and protect even a few uncut trees!
