The president of the Union MTRZ “Sava Kovacevic”, Dragan Miljanic said yesterday that the labor association of Tivat military shipbuilding yard is giving the full support to the demands and the fight of local people from Zelenika, who are against the decision that in that harbor Italian – Montenegrin firm “Eurocem” should install the silos for the overload of scattered cement.
He reminded that the Government of Montenegro was selling the Tivat’s Arsenal to Canadian Peter Munk, who will turn the military shipbuilding yard into an exclusive marina for mega yachts “explaining that that among other things means the elimination of dirty technology of shipbuilding repair from Boka”. Miljanic said that that type of interpretation of Government is not logical.
– I am publicly asking the Government and the entire Montenegrin public whether the Arsenal was just an obstacle in the intention of “ecological development” of Boka. We from the union, faced with the persistence of the Government to push through this kind of selling of the Arsenal, agreed with that, that we want a marina and an “ecological Boka” for our descendants. However, not even a mile from here, the Government is planning to build silos for cement. Is that a contribution to “ecological Boka” and banishment of “dirty technologies” from the bay – wondered Miljanic.
The union of the Arsenal, he added, is giving a full support to the management of Herceg Novi, an to local people from Zelenika in their efforts to prevent the construction of silos for overload of cement.
– We are ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with them and prevent the construction of those silos, if the Government, because of the ecology, is closing our firm, which existed, worked, and fed for 117 years almost the entire Boka. Then he cannot allow the construction of the silos for overload of cement, which will feed only two or three families – said Miljanic.
He insisted that the authorities in the state should reply on the answers “whether the Arsenal was just an obstacle for the project of ecological Boka”.
