VZORCE ONESNAŽENE VODE DALI V ANALIZO

VZORCE ONESNAŽENE VODE DALI V ANALIZO

Danes smo vzorce vode iz Soče, ki smo jih po včerajšnjemu izpustu iz tovarne TKK po vzorčevalnem protokolu zbrali  v Trnovem in Kobaridu, dostavili na Nacionalni laboratorij za zdravje, okolje in hrano. Zakaj? Zato, ker po vrhunskem sprenevedanju direktorja TKK glede količine izlite snovi in tipa spojine ter dejstvu, da policisti na kraj uradnega vzorčenja inšpektorjev niso dovolili dostopa zaskrbljenim domačinom, upravičeno dvomimo v objektivnost uradnih rezultatov analiz. Rezultati analiz bodo predvidoma objavljeni v drugi polovici naslednjega tedna.    

SOČA – SPILL FROM FACTORY TKK

SOČA – SPILL FROM FACTORY TKK

This morning Soča downstream of factory TKK looks like this: Video: Bovec sport center A huge amount (2-6 tones) of yet unidentified chemical leaked from factory TKK in @socavalley. As expected mayors of municipalities Bovec and Kobarid did nothing (local firefighters did best they could tho to stop the spread) and haven’t even given a public statement about it till this moment. This is why people gathered in front of the factory and demanded to know who’s responsibility this catastrophe is and who and how will make sure this never happens again. Let’s hold fingers crossed that wildlife survives this insane case of negligence. Would you swim in this? Would […]

SOČA – RAZLITJE IZ TOVARNE TKK

SOČA – RAZLITJE IZ TOVARNE TKK

Danes zjutraj Soča dolvodno od TKK izgleda takole: Video: Bovec sport center Neštetokrat smo vsi z vsaj malo razuma pod kapo županom in ostalim lokalnim šefirom govorili, da je ta tovarna (v lastništvu belgijske družbe Soudal Holding) tempirana bomba in da tveganje za katastrofo ne odtehta 270 služb, ki jih nudi. A odgovor je bil vedno “Ja kaj, če pa daje zaposlitve in denar v naše blagajne…dajmo jim soglasje, da se širijo.” Razumemo, denar vam je pač vse, a tudi v tem vidiku bi bili lahko dovolj brihtni, da bi vedeli, da Soča daje kruh mnogo več ljudem kot tale fabrika. Če tokrat odgovorni ne bodo odgovarjali, je zadeva zrela […]

ZGODBA SAVE – URADNI NAPOVEDNIK

ZGODBA SAVE – URADNI NAPOVEDNIK

Po lanskem Balkan Rivers Tour 5, urah uporabnih materialov, ki smo jih posneli med spoznavanjem Save, in mesecih v montaži, je končno tu uradni napovednik prihajajočega filma Ena za reko: Zgodba Save. vimeo link Obstaja reka, ki iz osrčja Julijskih Alp teče skozi štiri države in številne pokrajine, vse do Beograda, kjer se izliva v Donavo, ki svojo pot konča v Črnem morju. Imenuje se Sava in je domača reka večini ekipe za in pred kamerami tega filma. Kljub temu, da živijo poleg nje, mnogi nikoli ne izkoristijo priložnosti, da bi jo zares spoznali. Kajakaški izlet po celotnem slovenskem delu reke (258 km) zagotavlja prav to, zato so se odločili, […]

THE SAVA STORY – OFFICIAL TRAILER

THE SAVA STORY – OFFICIAL TRAILER

After last year’s Balkan Rivers Tour 5, hours of useful materials we filmed while getting to know the Sava, and months in editing, here is the official trailer for the upcoming film One for the River: The Sava Story. vimeo link There is a river that flows from the heart of the Julian Alps through four countries and many landscapes, all the way to Belgrade, where it drains into the Danube, ending its journey in the Black Sea. It is called the Sava and is the home river of most of the team behind and in front of the cameras of this film. Despite living next to it, many never […]

25. marca je BBC premierno predstavil njihovo najnovejšo epizodo iz serije Earth’s Great Rivers – Danube, ki prikazuje glavne reke donavskega porečja.

STAGE VICTORY FOR ROMANIA’S BASCA MARE

STAGE VICTORY FOR ROMANIA’S BASCA MARE

Yesterday, after years of hard work and 4 court trials, our Romanian friends Catalin Campeanu and Calin Dejeu managed to prove that dam construction on stunning Basca Mare River is illegal, which means that construction authorisation obtained by the company Hydroelectric is canceled, woohoo! This is not the final legal step though, but the future for Basca Mare now looks brighter than ever. These passionate and determined guys demonstrated it is possible and are saying thank you to everyone who helped them in one way or another or simply donated to the cause when it was most necessary. The BRT4 week in Romania in 2019 was one for the books and it […]

DESTRUCTION IN THE PROTECTED TRNOVO GORGE ON SOČA

DESTRUCTION IN THE PROTECTED TRNOVO GORGE ON SOČA

Local sheriffs have been actively transforming the Soča Valley into Disneyland for several years, and their latest project has gone a step further. In the Trnovo gorge (between Trnovo and Kobarid), which is protected by Natura 2000 and at the same time declared a natural heritage and natural monument, illegal construction was recently undertaken. Despite the prohibition and disagreements by the Institute for Nature Protection of the Republic of Slovenia, they started (and almost finished) the works that reopened the abandoned road from Italian occupation and enabled access to the most remote pool of the Soča River by car. During the works stones, rocks and trees were barbarically pushed down […]

UNIČEVANJE ZAŠČITENE SOTESKE REKE SOČE

UNIČEVANJE ZAŠČITENE SOTESKE REKE SOČE

Lokalni šerifi dolino Soče že kar nekaj let zagnano spreminjajo v lunapark, njihov najnovejši projekt pa je šel še korak dlje. V trnovski soteski, ki je zaščitena z Naturo 2000 in je hkrati razglašena za naravno dediščino ter naravni spomenik, so se načrtno lotili črne gradnje. Navkljub prepovedim in nestrinjanju Zavoda za varstvo narave RS so pričeli (in že skoraj zaključili) z deli, ki so odkrila zapuščeno cesto in omogočila pristop do najbolj odročnega tolmuna reke Soče kar z avtom. Med deli so kamenje, skale in drevesa barbarsko porivali kar po klančini vse do Soče, kar lepo prikaže njihov odnos do narave te prelepe doline. Seveda se njihovi načrti tu […]
