Climate, Greta Thunberg ago followers in Eastern Europe
Young people, families, and intellectuals who live there to cultivate the tree-lined avenues, defending each green space and playground, organize the green even on the roofs and the top floors of the buildings. The town hall of Prague 6, elegant residential district in the northern part of the Czech capital, has become in a few years the fortress and the flagship of the environmental movement and for the defense of the climate of former soviet Empire. The local movement and the green party are in permanent mobilisation. "Against the attempts of speculators to buy land green, to make them buildable, to ensure that schools and daycare centers do not scarseggino, to convince people to use lefficientissima network of the tram and metro and non-polluting Suvs and large sedans, a status symbol of pollutants, in order to have more pedestrian-friendly streets that are safe for the children and for all", tells me that Petr Pisa, militant exemplary.

Germanist, clerk to the municipality for lanticorruzione and nellufficio for weddings. He and his wife Inka, a successful writer, fighting for a green future. And often the young families of Prague 6 find themselves in the processions in Letná Park against the premier-tycoon Andrej Babis. Users climate in the district is the theme daily. In the mobilizations, a fee for the environment, kindergartens and schools, which every construction company must pay, the removal of cars parked in forbidden places, and the request to the town hall to only use the energy green.

Europe, central and southeast, thirty years after the end of communism: the wind using the Greta blows strong from the Baltic to the Balkans. The greens are the new dissidents, the engine of the critical voices of civil society. Dynamic especially in the Czech republic, are network in that part of the continent, just as in the last century, Charta 77 and Solidarnosc. Also helping the comrades in the struggle of the countries where commitment is most difficult. Here's the situation, country by country.

Czech republic
The green Party, led by Michal Berg, who is also in the summit of the european Greens, and Magdalena Davis, and the youth movement they face the hostility of president Milos Zeman, who never misses an opportunity to diffamarli as "instead liars that I want to urinate", and the lobbies of the oligarchs, the masters of industry heavy, coal, other sectors that are dirty. Also the premier Babis is accused of polluting the soil with the plants of its agro-food giant Agrofert. The giant energy exert an influence enormous on the government. The civil society urban reacts. A high-school eighteen-year-old, Petr Doubravsky, you leroe of the movement, and always keeps in close contact with Greta Thunberg. "The green movement", he explains to me, "originated as a dissident group of mothers against pollution shortly before the velvet revolution dellautunno 89, and Havel supported him". The Greens, the austrians, the strength of the government, are ally and example. But the party and the movement for Czech help in every way the ecodissidenti of all lEst.

in The last elections the Parthia zieloni, green party, entered the Parliament. Together with the ngo of the young civil society in urban fighting against lostinata priority allinquinantissimo carobne. Malgorzata Tracz and Maciej Zozefovic are men in contact with young people of Prague 6 and the leading green Czech and the rest of europe. Tough battle: the power sovranista, explain the militant ecologists such as Kuba Gogolewski, think allopt out from the commitments of the green strategy union. Their first success: the Eu and western investors, including Aeneas have frozen funding and investment for the huge, coal-fired power plant in Ostroleka. Warsaw ideriva from coal for 80 percent of energy, and is accused by environmentalists of the use of the generous eu funds for the conversion of the green (2 billion euros) to the benefit of big coal. PGE, the most important, is expanding the huge coal-fired power plant in Turów and want to rip the government allowed to use it until 2044. The protests of nearby cities of Czech Slovak and German are ignored.

"Greta is just a little girl sick", they say high sources of Fidesz, the party of Viktor Orbán. Catholic fundamentalists, as well as in Poland, the define "possessed by the devil". But the young leader green Gergely Karácsony, elected by withe among all the opposition parties the mayor of Budapest, looms as lavversario political the most fearsome of the premier-autocrat. Do not lose time, supported by the young elites, local: launches the programs, green for the dynamic, but overcrowded capital, and spreads a message of defiance: not the migrants that are blocked by the Wall at the border, but which sets on the alarm climate are the main threat for the future. Even Orbán feels compelled to speak for the first time of "ecological policy conservative christian and national".

in Vain Stoyanova, together with other citizens of Pernik -100 thousand inhabitants, not far from the capital Sofia - organizes events, and appeals from outside of the eu will: his city, as other years not drinking water. The industries are drying up the reserve, the basin of the dam Studena. "I study English at my daughters 9 and 5 years old, why do I not see a normal life for them, without the need for water in the 21st century in a country of the union". Adelina Ivanova tells the newspaper: from the taps comes out only water inquinatissima, rationed, from 16 to 22. "All I have to buy boxes of mineral water and bring it on home to 7 floors of stairs. A real shower is a dream." The protests verdi have forced the resignation of the minister of environment Neno Dimov, his successor, Emil Dimitrov promises investments for 900 million euros, but the net water lost from 60 to 75 percent water, as if that was not enough the high-consumption industries.

western Balkans
The Czech Michal Berg has convinced the european Greens to meet in may in Skopje. In Macedonia of the North, as in Albania, the sensitivity is a big step forward. The atmosphere also improved in Croatia after the change of government. The situation is more tragic is that the Serbian Belgrade city dallaria the most polluted in Europe. "And our comrades in the struggle there are still small groups that are fragmented," says Berg. The end of the text

"The Republic will fight always in defense of the freedom of information, to its readers and to all those who have at heart the principles of democracy and civil coexistence"
