Σε αυτόν εδώ το χώρο, ανάμεικτες με τις συνεντεύξεις που θα επανέλθουν, θα μεταφέρω αυτούσιες, αξιόλογες αναρτήσεις που θεωρώ ότι αξίζουν περαιτέρω προβολής.
Κάνω αρχή με την ανάρτηση του Επίτροπου Περιβάλλοντος η οποία αφορά επιστολή ξένου τουρίστα που κανονικά θα έπρεπε να μας είχε ταρακουνήσει όλους. Ίδρωσε κανενός υπεύθυνου το αυτί; Αν ο ξένος μας ξανάρθει του χρόνου θα βρει άλλη εικόνα;
Γράφει ο Επίτροπος:
Επισυνάπτω το κείμενο επιστολής που στάλθηκε στο μουχτάρη της Πέγειας από τουρίστα σχετικά με τον Ακάμα. ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΤΟ ΔΙΑΒΑΣΕΤΕ !!
My wife and I with our two young children recently had a holiday in the Coral Bay Area of Pafos. We had never visited Cyprus before, but were attracted by your current holiday advertisement on some of the International TV Channels “Cyprus an Island for all seasons”.
As a young couple we enjoy walking and of course were excited to note that Coral Bay is near to the protected Akamas Region. Therefore early in our holiday all four of us set off to explore the area near our hotel.
At first we were really exited to see the undisturbed coast line and the sea. However as we ventured further along the coast we were appalled to see areas littered by condoms, tissue paper and in one case even a pair of underpants. Further on there were items of metal and even an old sofa bed. The first question that came to our minds was what is Cyprus trying to sell?, Sun or Sex. It was absolutely disgusting, and we had to do our best to stop our children peering at this rubbish. If you ever wanted to see an open air brothel after the previous nights activities this was the place.
We did see one warning sign, it said No Dogs, may I suggest that a sign saying No Pigs (the two legged variety) would be more appropriate !!!
It just so happens that I am a junior officer in the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the appalling sight I saw in your Coral Bay Area of Peyia really struck home to me. Even in the poorest of third world countries you would be hard pressed see to what we witnessed in Cyprus.
I have taken photos of what I have seen and will of course register them with the appropriate department at UNEP. I sincerely hope that you will take some action to protect your environment at Coral Bay. From what I have seen there are at least two things you can do. Firstly put fencing around the entire Coral Bay Area to stop vehicles entering, secondly have regular police patrols in the area at night.
The environment is in our hands and anything positive we can do matters. I am just saddened to think that people of such low caliber live in Cyprus. Undoubtedly your government needs to take action and take action fast. Otherwise your all ready fragile tourist industry will suffer even more.
Yes Peyia is it SEX or SUN the answer lies in your hands !!!
