Through a communication dated July 28th, 2011 the European Commission has confirmed the opening of an investigation concerning the overall situation of environmental pollution involving the province of Trieste, the suspension of the duty free status of the Northern Free Port (“old” port) of Trieste, and concerning the respect of human rights by the Italian authorities in Zone A of the Free Territory of Trieste – FTT (Territorio Libero di Trieste). The report has been presented by me in person on July 11th, 2011 as a citizen of the Free Territory of Trieste as established by the Treaty of Peace of 1947.
The reasons of my appeal:
From 1997 to nowadays, as a representative of Non-Government Organizations (currently Alpe Adria Green and Greenaction Transnational), I carried out many investigations concerning the environmental pollution of this particular area of Europe. I did also investigate these aspects concerning the use of EU funds, especially when involved in projects to develop tourism. I fought to obtain the actual participation of the citizens in environment-related procedures. Through detailed investigations, I did also take interest in the contracts concerning public works as well as of the biggest projects to turn the coast of the province of Trieste in a cement jungle, and these concerning energetic plants (gas terminals), not to mention the massive housing speculation in the area of the Northern Free Port of Trieste.
All the investigating activities mentioned above mi lead me to report, in front of the Italian judiciary authorities, what in fact is a “government system” based on the systematic violation of both national and communitarian law. But, at the end, I had to face the evidence that these very judiciary authorities were seriously involved in the “system”. All of my reports have been closed, often without any further investigation and I, for having reported and denounced to public opinion situations of absolute seriousness, I had to experience serious threatens and legal persecutions, in a situation of substantial deprivation of my own civil rights.
What I have reported to the communitarian authorities:
The environmental disaster of Trieste and its province, as well as the repression put in action by the Italian authorities against me, for having denounced to public attention this dramatic situation, which had been hidden for State interests, as well as for opposing to the system of institutional embezzlement, which are all direct causes of the devastation of this territory and of the illegal traffics which were allowed to take place outside and above any law in the past 57 years of Italian administration
In order to have a better understanding of what this trusteeship Italian “administration” by order of the UNO meant for Trieste, recommend the dossier “D come discariche – L’operazione Attila e la devastazione della Venezia Giulia: pianificazione ed esecuzione di un crimine di stato” (“D for dumping sites – Operation Attila and the devastation of Venezia Giulia: organization and execution of a State crime”) published on the website of Greenaction Transnational.
This environmental disaster has invested – completely – the International Port of Trieste as well, since one of the goals of this operation was reducing that to a second order dock for it not to overshadow other, national Ports. This negative transformation turned the former first port of Austria-Hungary to face, on one side, the disuse of its precious free zone, otherwise a natural magnet for commercial traffics, and, on the other side, the creation of a dangerous oil terminal and its oppressive load of pollution. The Port of Trieste did so follow the destiny of the city and its province, becoming a receptacle for hazardous waste and the “free zone” for the most dangerous trades, covered by Secret of State as well. Coastal dumping sites and others by the sea complete the receipt for the annihilation of a conquered land.
The last phase of the destruction of the Port of Trieste now consists in a forced conversion its Northern Free Zone in an urban area, allowing a massive housing speculation, amounting to 2 billions Euro. Houses, Case, Hotels, recreational yacht basins, stores, casinos. A new Balkan Monte Carlo, this is the future they envision for the city-port of Trieste: the perfect city for the Mafia. This final phase has been preceded by the recent suspension of the status of Free Zone of the Northern Port area (“old” port) illegitimately and disposed by the Commissary of Government of Friuli Venezia Giulia, yet, outside of their competence area. A clamorous violation of the Treaty of Peace that has now been reported to the UE.
The damages ate enormous, especially for such a little territory, and can be estimated to about 100 billions of Euro, covering both environmental pollution and downgrading of the International Port by suppressing its commercial traffics.
Violation of international right:
The facts I reported took place in the province of Trieste, which up to now still is FTT ad established by the Treaty of Peace of 1947, and I have taken action ad representative of organized Movements and European citizen, but also as a citizen of the FTT in order to protect the environment and the interests of the community, seriously harmed by Italy, a member State of the EU to whom the management and administration of this land and of the International Free Port of Trieste was assigned.
What I demanded to the EU:
That the European Commission, as for its role as grantor of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the E.U. and then of the International Treaties, ensures the respect of International and Communitarian Right violated by Italy in the province of Trieste-FTT;
As citizen of Europe and the FTT, to have my fundamental rights granted, as Italian justice denies me these, appealing for that to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights undersigned by the EU;
That the European Commission informs the UNO of the fact that Italy took the unilateral decision to suspend the status of Free Port of the Port of Trieste, allowing, in violation of the Treaty of Peace of 1947, to turn the Northern Free Port at an use with is different from that of a port.
