Day by day, Mitrovica is turning into a city of concrete, the woods are being cut without a second thought, river beds are solidified with cement, quarries are eroding mountains (with or without permission), the green spaces are getting smaller and replaced with apartments that people cannot afford. Soon we will be voting for the local assembly members as well as the mayor of the municipality, so it is an ideal moment to raise environmental issues.
The 24th of September marks the world day of the fight against the system that is causing climate change.
We are joining this effort with a symbolic action, just like last year, at the Mehë Uka square, from 12:00 to 13:00.
One day before (23.09.), we are meeting up at the Social Space for Deconstruction, to brainstorm and make the signs. We welcome you from 10:00 until 16:00 to get prepared for the action but also to talk about the environmental issues of Mitrovica. Bring cardboard, white sheets, and we will provide coffee and tea.
Please respect the health-safety measures by wearing a mask, keeping the distance and disinfecting your hands.
This event will be organized by Mitrovica activists, together with Social Space for Deconstruction and the Group of Volunteers “Mitrovica Environmentalists”.
