Stara Planina Union of Local Communities declares “state of emergency” over SHPPs
In Stara Planina Nature Park, Serbia, the battle between local communities and SHPP investors has reached a new level. The Union of Local Communities (SMZSP) declared a state of emergency due to non-compliance with Serbian laws. The SMZSP has organized a 24/7 solidarity watch in Topli Do to prevent illegal construction and protect the law. The Union has also called on President Vučic to finally act against illegal construction and in favour of strictly protected species, threatened by the construction.
