We are here to protect Aliaga. We stand with you with the people of Izmir to protect our lives. Since the first agreement was made for the dismantling of this ship, we made a series of statements as the people of Izmir, environmental organizations and professional organizations. However, the ministry, which is the biggest representative of this issue in the eyes of the public, ignored the reports we prepared on this issue and turned its ear only to the company that it had agreed for dismantling. The ministry says that we are following the process meticulously. They say that this dismantling will comply with international regulations. However, despite our repeated requests, they do not share any of them with us or with the public. There are important arguments that that warship contains a high rate of radioactive that it used in nuclear tests, and that it contains 1500 tons of waste materials, including 600 tons of asbestos. But the ministry turns its ear to these and trusts the company’s statements. These statements do not reflect reality. We watched this movie again and again,” he said.

Despite the precautionary decision , a ship tried to enter the country, despite the very negative elements for the health of all people, for the sake of rent. “We see that this is being tried to be realized. We will not be a party to this crime. We will continue the effort until that ship emerges from these waters,” he said.
