Ein Artikel in englisch aus Griechenland gefunden auf de.indymedia über „grüne Entwicklung“. Diese wird auch in der deutschen Linken kaum kritisch betrachtet. Welche ökologischen Negativauswirkungen sie haben kann, gerade dann wenn sie innerhalb herrschaftsförmiger und kapitalistischer Logiken eingesetzt wird, wird wenig diskutiert. In diesem Artikel geht es um griechische Inseln, die zwar nicht verkauft werden sollen (im Zuge der griechischen Pleite) sondern im Rahmen grüner Entwicklung zerstört werden sollen, auch für den Profit deutscher Firmen. Eine Art grünem Neokolonialismus also. Zeigen tut das, dass auch die noch so tollste Technologie zerstörerisch ist, innerhalb zerstörerischen Strukturen.

During the press conference of Papandreou and Merkel, a question to both of them was stated by journalists about the issue of selling the islands of Greece, for the debt reduction. Merkel did not answer, but Gerogey said: „… it is not a solution to sell our islands. WE LOVE THEM and in some years even with the help of Germany may become ideal examples of green development …“ (!!!)

In short, the islands have already been sold so they can firstly be destroyed by wind factories and other renewable energy sources and later we can think again if we will sell them because after the destruction of wind factories we will not love them anymore.

It is well known that in the business of wind factories are also active German companies such as the famous Siemens.

It is also known that where the green development goes, the destruction of nature is irreversible and complete. Because the green development concerns not only the local energy needs, but transforms whole areas in factories of giant generators and distributes electric energy to enormous distances. It is also known the residents‘ reactions such as the recent events in many parts like the citizens‘ reactions in Kandanos, on Naxos island, the sabotage against already existing wind factories on Karystos island and elsewhere.

The new roads that get constructed, the tones of cement that is used, the uprooting of trees are just some small examples.

Many green companies are also subsidiaries and active in oil business, briefly they exploit resources such as water, air and sun that until now were common and free for all, so they can enslave more and more people since the occupied land and the roads for the installation of wind factories, belong to the companies after this plunder. This way, they are even depriving the people’s natural shelter that was always the mountains, in periods when the repression of the dominant was growing.

Nature and life just get murdered, after the air-streets of the birds are occupied by huge wind turbines that kill them, the trees get uprooted and large areas get surrounded by fences and in reality get stolen from the local communities.

The destruction and the cost is so huge that none production and consumption of energy produced by wind turbines during a 15 years life-time can recoup them; if we will also mention the tons of networking cables, the millions tons of cement, equal to the miles of dug land for the networks (especially Greece with the mountain-ridges, use which is prohibited even in the countries where the turbines are manifactured) it is easy to realize the magnitude of a disaster of the so-called green development … And of course, not for helping tourism that as they like to say it is Greece’s heavy industry, but not even goats will be able to survive in these areas, because the nature gets destroyed and the land goes to private companies‘ profit interests.

We must not forget the economic disaster that is resulted for taxpayers of EU, after each such wind-pole costs about 4 million euros and is subsidized for free for more than 50% of the cost; that’s the reason of the authoritans‘ ecological sensitivity. As for the energy production, the ideal days with 5 or 6 beaufort winds are very few in compare with no wind or gale force winds days when the function of the wind-poles is unable or even they can be destroyed.

So, after the statement of Georgey it was like signing the destruction of nature and the further enslavement and extermination of this place and its inhabitants after the new economical measures, together with the stealing of natural resources. What comes next is the modernization of the state and the growth of repression, issues about Merkel said that the German state is still willing to lend its knowledge and expertise, generously … and … without any will for profit.

We wait for them with our hands full.
