and EU fascists is of course a political thing
Not really, as PB is a Natura 2000 site, so the EU (and Poland) are committed to ensuring its protection as part of the EU nature framework - it is the core plank of the EU Habitats Directive. Natura 2000 puts them all under an obligation to maintain them as 'the best of the best' examples of habitat. If a member state then damages a Natura 2000 site, then the EU is obliged to act, as all parties have agreed to look after them. It's not like the EU is picking a fight, it's more loike someone is breaking one of the window in the church.
One could think that PB is going to be destroyed soon
Well, that is actually the concern, that the damage will be so extensive that the forest will be irrevocably changed, and what is special about it will be destroyed. Things were moving in a general direction for about 15 years, now they've swung right back the other way.
almost like ISIS blowing up the ancient monuments
Without being overly dramatic, to UNESCO (and scientists) that is exactly what it is like. It is the destruction of cultural and scientific heritage. That's why it was listed by UNESCO.
What's the record of this gov on the forestry and environment in general ?
Surprised you ask this, as the record is very poor. There is the Bialowieza issue, but also the 'Szyszko law' fiasco (feeling of trees all over Poland, which had to be reversed), and there's aslo the opposition to renewable energy and the promotion of coal.
The logging was going on there each and every year.
Yes, but there was a new management plan that would limit the impact. Szyszko has tripled the quota, and removed all the safeguards to protect and restore the forest ecosystem (leaving deadwood, not felling trees >100 years old).
During 8 years of PO ecologists were protesting hundreds of times and the same folks didn't give a flying feck
There was quite a bit of noise actually. There was a vociferous campaign to extend the National Park, led by many who are now protesting (Kocham Puszcza). It was this pressure that forced the compromise that PO made with the new management plan.
What has happened now is a totally different league, reversing all of the agreements and compromised of the past 10 years, and threatening extreme and permanent damage to the forest system. That is why national and international protests have been so loud, to match the perceived threat and direction of movement.Please cut down on the number of quotes in your posts
