What a racist comment, borne from pure ignorance.

Just don't try and go there to look for a discarded mattress or fridge freezer to house your home with. :roll: The countryside in Greece is generally immaculate (except where some Albanians/illegals may have camped more recently). But the Greeks care a lot - hence the opposition they meet for their efforts.

Most olive growing Greek villages have moved towards totally organic farming, from decades ago.

Greek beaches and sea-water are meticulously monitored and have among the highest standards in the world. Whole villages whitewash their buildings and pavements for cleanliness.

The Greeks built a mountain bear sanctuary to stop the cruel bear sports that were still going on in Turkey and Balkan states.

And finally:

In the Aegean Sea, Greece has allocated a large area for the preservation of the Mediterranean monk seal and its habitat. The Greek Alonissos Marine Park, that extends around the Northern Sporades islands, is the main action ground of the Greek MOm organisation.[14] MOm is greatly involved in raising awareness in the general public, fundraising for the helping of the monk seal preservation cause, in Greece and wherever needed. Greece is currently investigating the possibility of declaring another monk seal breeding site as a national park, and also has integrated some sites in the NATURA 2000 protection scheme. The legislation in Greece is very strict towards seal hunting, and in general, the public is very much aware and supportive of the effort for the preservation of the Mediterranean monk seal.

I find your ignorance embarrassingly third world and can only assume you were raised somewhere completely backward.

There are always arguments for and against the introduction of a new industry in a specific location and you’d have to be living there to understand the situation.

But anyway, we are in Cyprus and thus not interested in such localized issues of foreign countries that do not affect us.

Another ignorant statement - mental paralysis being preferable to reality. :roll:

- But if it means that you are giving up starting blasphemous threads on Greece, then please remain blissfully unaware in your semi-turkified world.

Yes it is a foreign issue! Might as well talk about the Gulf of Mexico eco disaster.

We have more pressing issues in our own country!

Let this thread be a lesson to Erdogan and his brutal police force on the right way for a democracy to treats its "hippies" or environmental protesters.
