Edirne Deputy Assoc. Dr. Okan Gaytancıoğlu made a speech on behalf of the CHP Group in the bill on the establishment of the Uludağ Area Presidency, which was accepted in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. Drawing attention to the fact that the door to plunder has been opened with the practices that have become widespread under the name of field presidencies, Assoc. Dr. Gaytancıoğlu emphasized that the establishment of such a presidency for the Gulf of Saos has begun to be voiced and stated that they are against it.
YOU LOVE THE GREEN DOLLARS NOT NATURE
Assoc. Dr. Gaytancıoğlu said in his speech: “There is a desire to establish a field presidency in Uludağ, which is a natural protected area and national park. What is this green friendship of yours and also your hostility to green? We know your green friendship very well, you are against American imperialism and you love American dollars! As for the green hostility, how many times have you brought the olive groves here; You brought it up last month. The people are opposed; Don’t you think of the term ‘people’? Why bring something that the public does not want?
YOU SEE THE GRASSES AS A BUSINESS
You see pastures as a burden. In our country, pastures are constitutionally guaranteed. Let it be green, look, we are having a feed problem today. For us to solve those problems, the oath has to be free. We say let’s protect the pastures, bring water, fertilize; Wherever you find pasture, you are trying to make so-called investments into treasury land, you are trying to establish thermal power plants, you are trying to establish transmitter stations, you are trying to pass the road there, ‘Let’s make organized industrial zones there, free land anyway.’ you say. Please stop this gratuitous desecration of state property.
Another green; you give the lands that have lost their forest quality as walnut and almond lands. Good and good, there are always supporters; For some reason the villagers don’t come out. You don’t have in mind the villagers living there, you always have subsidiary companies.
YOU GIVE THE SHORE PLOTS TO YOUR FRIENDS
Again, you gave the shores to your supporters, you established foundations, and you carry out activities here through these foundations. You have built HEPPs, look, we are dying in the drought. ‘Don’t.’ they said, ‘Do not curb the rivers and streams of the Black Sea; flow to the Black Sea.’ they said, but you are not listening to it. You built GPPs, geothermal plants, you destroyed underground; There are olives on it, there are figs, these have dried up. You are officially collapsing into nature, you are collapsing. Now you have found a new way of crashing and plundering; It is the same as the area presidency, that is, the plunder presidency.
EXCEPT THE PRESIDENCY OF THE HISTORICAL AREA OF GELİBOLU, YOU HEADE THE PRESIDENCY OF OTHER PRESIDENCY
I want to put aside the Gallipoli Historical Site Presidency of the Gallipoli Wars because there is already an international situation there; Like the British, the Australians. You do not have much activity there, but then there is Cappadocia, you were the head of plunder there, now you are the head of plunder in Uludag, nature is being slaughtered. ‘Don’t.’ People are saying to you, insistently, you go to -How long do you have left in here?- you bring such laws to the Parliament, and a special law.
YOU WANT TO LOAD SAROS TO PROOF FOUNDATIONS
Well, what is the state’s institutions not enough for you, why is it not working for you? There is the General Directorate of National Parks, there are municipalities, there is the General Directorate of Forestry; They have ministries, they have legislation.
Now you also want to be the field chairman for Saros. Of course, you cannot issue licenses to a self-cleaning gulf of the world. We give these places to the supporters we want, however we want.” You have already plundered Saros despite the people, despite the science, despite the law. You gave Gökçetepe to a foundation called ‘TÜRGEV’, all your ministers and deputies come there, young people come, but for some reason not every young person can come because your young people come for five-day, one-week periods allocated from the Ministry of Environment. Why don’t you provide this to every young person who has taken the exam, and why don’t you choose them by lot?
Again, you gave Vakıf Beach to one of your supporters, you gave it to TÜGVA. Ya, we’re giving a proposal. ‘We hear.’ We say, ‘You have given.’ you are not answering. You verbally tell us: ‘Yes, we gave it to the TÜGVA Foundation for seven plus thirteen years.’ Why don’t you answer, why are you doing side work? You are literally collapsing into nature.
YOU ARE BRINGING FASTER LAWS
We have to leave nature to future generations. This land is ours, but in the future it will belong to our grandchildren, their children and grandchildren. If the Republic of Turkey is to exist, it will be by producing with human power but with the power of nature, by producing and dividing it fairly. That’s why you’re introducing such laws, but we will come to power soon, we will change all of them, and we will put an end to these plundering presidencies. It will be what the public wants, what science wants, what the law wants.”
