Pollution and health in Livorno-Collesalvetti Sin City, the point of a public assembly

The meeting of Friday April 8 at the Civic Center of Stagno organized by the Left of Collesalvetti. There will be Dr. Fabrizio Bianchi, co-author of the Sentieri studies.

COLLESALVETTI (Li) – The SIN of Livorno – Collesalvetti has been recognized since 1998 as one of the most contaminated places in Italy but despite 24 years have passed, the reclamation is still on the high seas.
the V Paths Report (2019), the epidemiological surveillance program in contaminated sites to be rehabilitated (SIN) sponsored by the ministry of health, provided on this area alarming data: excess mortality and a higher incidence of tumors as well as respiratory and digestive diseases.

In 2020, the Tuscany Region (the only one in Italy) updated the study on the four SINs of the Region (in addition to Livorno – Collesalvetti, there are Piombino, Orbetello and Massa Carrara). This in-depth analysis confirmed the worrying data of the Sentieri study, with a pejorative general picture with regard to the NAS of Livorno – Collesalvetti.

To take stock of the situation the left of Collesalvetti, with the patronage of the cultural circle Antonio Gramsci, called a public assembly Friday April 8 at 9:00 p.m. at the Stagno Civic Center (via Karl Marx 25, Stagno Collesalvetti) in which all citizens, associations and local institutions are invited to participate.

The purpose of the meeting, explain the organizers, is to:
Take stock of the environmental and health situation of the territory in the light of the latest updates of the Sentieri study of November 2020 (based on the agreement between the Tuscany Region, the Municipalities of Massa, Carrara, Livorno, Collesalvetti, Piombino, Orbetello, Asl, Ars, Ispro, IFC- CNR Pisa, Arpat, Irpet) and create a space for exchange by collecting proposals to implement shared actions.
Laying the foundations for true economic, environmental and social sustainability move in the direction of a low impact with the safeguard of jobs and future generations.
– Highlight the important role that citizens can play with the participatory contribution of the Tuscany Region for the circular economy and the recovery plan.
We believe that the time is no longer for divisions or exploitation – they add – but to give serious answers to an environmental problem which until now, despite its seriousness, has not found the right solutionsthe”.

The environmental epidemiologist will intervene individually Dr Fabrice Bianchi, co-author of SENTIERI Studies (National epidemiological study of territories and establishments exposed to the risk of pollution, promoted and financed by the Ministry of Health). The meeting will be moderated by the journalist Giuseppe Mascambruno.
