If it went to a referendum, how long do you think it would take? Euro referendums took months to set up in other countries, didn't they?

And just an info: Mrs Shinaraki is from Petrokefali, a village between Moires and Sivas, near Kouses, where I live half year... and until now, I never heard someone thinking positive in this area about this project.
... May be this will help....

It's not the number of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away.

In the mean time all mayors and local officials are chewing up their words without taking a clear position on the issue. Only Shinaraki made it clear so far that a port construction in the area should not adversely affect the tourist industry.

The latest is:
the tourmoil which is going on with the Port Unions of Pireaus and Thessaloniki and the Minister in regards to the privitization of the ports is continuing. Experienced sources on this issue say that very soon the ministry will open the doors for the private sharks (by the way coming with different flags from allover the world) to compete who is going to eat the bigest portion of the ports pie. The Unions can not reverse the decision which has already been taken to proceed with the Ports Management Privitization. It is very clear that all investors and shipping companies are competing primarily for the ports of Pireaus and Thessaloniki because of their geographical location and ease of the goods transportation from there on to the Balcan states and other countries. While the minister is preoccupied with the Pireaus and Thessaloniki ports issue I expect that the Timbaki port issue will stay dormant for a while.

According to a report from "Ditching Dirty Diesel" (California) these container ships are causing a huge polution, but if something is done about it, the money would come back three to five times in saved health expenses. According to the report, airplanes, ships, and trucks are causing between thirty and seventyfive percent of California's discharge of nitrogen (NOx) and particles of soot, a polution which is evaluated to cost approx. 2,400 lives a year. LIVES! Like in "goodbye world, I won't be here tomorrow".
International traffic is not regulated by the Kyoto Agreement - which is in anyway not respected by the majority of countries - so the good intentions of the company Mærsk (Danish, by the way) to change to less poluting fuel when approaching the harbours will probably not be a common way to act.
If spending 2,400 lives a year in the Messara area, how long would it take to get a real 'liberated nature'???

The above was decided after short communication between Demetris Sarris and Manolis Kefalogiannis on the issue.
