Thirsty for justice
Enforcing EU water laws to defend communities from coal 

Europe’s supply of clean, safe water is under major stress, and coal is one of the culprits. At the Polish border with Czech Republic and Germany, the Turów mine is drying up water resources from two countries, and threatening the groundwaters of a whole region, in breach of EU laws.

Speakers will include:
Anna Cavazzini, Member of the European Parliament
Martin Hojsík, Member of the European Parliament
Tomáš Zdechovský, Member of the European Parliament
Anita Sowińska, Member of the Polish Parliament
Martin Puta, Head of the Liberec Region
Milan Starec, representative of Czech impacted communities
Kuba Gogolewski, Project Coordinator and Senior Campaigner at Fundacja “RT-ON”
Jeremy Wates, Secretary General of the European Environmental Bureau

The webinar will be moderated by Riccardo Nigro, Campaign Coordinator for coal combustion and mines at the European Environmental Bureau.
