The Mayor of Patras, Costas Peletidis, and the members of the Municipal Authority, will participate in the gathering organized by the Coordinating Committee of Fire Victims of Ilia, on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at 12 noon in Athens, so that fire victims across the country can claim everything to continue living in their place with dignity.
The fire victims in the region of Achaia and their Committees are called to give a massive “present”, united with the fire victims of the rest of the country, to claim from the government, which is responsible for the disasters, to take exactly this responsibility. Because despite the constant, any disasters, from fires and floods, not all protection measures are taken, since the policies implemented, to date, by all governments, consider as economically the necessary measures to protect our lives, because they are not reciprocal and do not contribute to the profitability of business groups.
The Municipal Authority, as stated in a relevant announcement, stood by and supported the just demands of the victims of the fires in our area, clarifying from the Government:
Compensate in full (100%) and immediately all those affected who have suffered damage to houses, farms, livestock and plants.
To be strengthened for as long as its destructions last.
Integrated forest management and protection.
The abolition of its unscientific separation from extinction.
To cover without further delay, all the needs of the Fire and Forest Service with permanent staff and firefighting equipment.
