2 Guys in Poznan (Poland) posts about a local roadwork stoppage due to our friends at Greenpeace. Get a load of the newspaper article they link to:
ROSPUDA VALLEY, Poland (Reuters) – Scores of young activists camped in a remote peat bog in the northeast of Poland last month and threatened to chain themselves to trees to stop bulldozers clearing land for a highway.
That kind of civil disobedience was forbidden under communism. It was also unnecessary: by the 1980s infrastructure projects had ground to a halt.
Gotta admit that’s pretty funny.
They also note that many agree that Poland probably needs to expand its 356-mile network of highways.
356-mile? Does 356 miles even qualify as a “network”?
They also point out that the EU is now getting involved. EU vs. Greenpeace? Who woulda thunk it?
UPDATE: Whoops. Ought to read the links kindly provided for my use. The EU (well, the European Commission) is siding with Greenpeace on this.
