Worrying situation of human rights defenders worldwide

Desde el PSol exigen un proyecto de “Ley de Bosques” participativo

En el marco de la audiencia pública sobre el ordenamiento de la Ley de Bosques, realizada este martes en la legislatura provincial, el Partido Solidario de Córdoba emitió un comunicado rechazando el ante proyecto de Unión Por Córdoba (UPC) y exigiendo “la posibilidad de discutir un proyecto de Ley de Bosques participativo, en foros abiertos que garanticen que todas las voces sean escuchadas”.

Comunicado: Desde el Partido Solidario Córdoba venimos recogiendo la preocupación de los vecinos y vecinas de toda la provincia ante este intento del Gobierno de la Provincia de aprobar una Nueva Ley de Bosques, entre gallos y medianoche, a espaldas de la sociedad. Nuestro partido no avala la voraz mercantilización de los bosques y sus ecosistemas que el ante proyecto oficialista intenta habilitar.

Como en 2009 cuando se sancionó la ley que lo creó, el ordenamiento territorial de los bosques nativos (OTBN) de Córdoba sigue planteando diferencias irreconciliables entre el sector rural y el ambientalismo.
