Referendum, vota Sì per fermare le trivelle

Trivelle Zero Marche

Trivelle Zero Marche

«Il governo scommette sul silenzio degli italiani, noi scommettiamo su tutti i cittadini che si mobiliteranno per il voto»

È nato il Comitato Nazionale delle Associazioni Vota Sì per fermare le trivelle con lo scopo di invitare i cittadini a partecipare al referendum del 17 aprile contro le trivellazioni in mare e votare Sì per abrogare la norma (introdotta con l’ultima Legge di Stabilità) che permette alle attuali concessioni di estrazione e di ricerca di petrolio e gas entro le 12 miglia dalla costa di non avere più scadenze.

La Legge di Stabilità 2016 pur vietando il rilascio di nuove autorizzazioni entro le 12 miglia dalla costa, rende “sine die” le licenze già rilasciate in quel perimetro di mare.trivellazioni_offshore

La vera posta in gioco di questo referendum è far esprimere gli italiani sulle scelte energetiche strategiche che deve compiere il nostro Paese, in ogni settore economico e sociale. Il Comitato nazionale si pone l’obiettivo di diffondere informazioni sul referendum e far crescere la mobilitazione, spiegando che il vero quesito è: “Vuoi che l’Italia investa sull’efficienza energetica, sul 100% fonti rinnovabili, sulla ricerca e l’innovazione?”.

Il petrolio è una vecchia energia fossile causa di inquinamento, dipendenza economica, conflitti, protagonismo delle grandi lobby. Dobbiamo continuare a difendere le grandi lobby petrolifere e del fossile a discapito dei cittadini, che vorrebbero meno inquinamento, e delle migliaia di imprese che stanno investendo sulla sostenibilità ambientale e sociale? Chiediamo piuttosto che il nostro Paese prenda con decisione la strada che ci porterà fuori dalle vecchie fonti fossili, innovi il nostro sistema produttivo, combatta con coerenza l’inquinamento e i cambiamenti climatici.

Il Governo, rimanendo sordo agli appelli per l’election day (l’accorpamento in un’unica data del voto per il referendum e per le amministrative) ha deciso di sprecare soldi pubblici per 360 milioni di euro per anticipare al massimo la data del voto e puntare sul fallimento della partecipazione degli elettori al Referendum. Il Governo scommette sul silenzio degli italiani. Noi scommettiamo su tutti i cittadini che vorranno far sentire la loro voce e si mobiliteranno per il voto.
