MEKTUBUN KONU ( Subject)
based Canadian Company Alamos Gold’s actions in Turkey —
Devletinin Çevreden Sorumlu Birimleri
GÖNDERİLECEK İNGİLİZCE METİN
am writing this letter to inform you about a Toronto based Canadian Company
Alamos Gold’s actions in Turkey.
Recently, there has been a
big public outcry about deforestation of the “Kaz Dağları” (Kaz Mountains).
This mountain range is of
critical importance and a nature wonderland.
The current government
authorities of Turkey obviously gave license to Alamos Gold. To date it was
estimated that 195,000 trees were cut in these mountains and below pictures
should give you some idea of the disaster.
People of the region have
been desperately trying to stop this carnage. They claim that theirlivelihood
is at stake.
Kaz Dağları is known with
its clean air that many asthma patients come to feel better.
Below please find the
points that the CEO of Alamos Gold gave during an interview. He is boasting
that the investment they make is only 100 million USD. The estimated earnings
from this operation can be as high as 4 billion USD. The people of the region
and Turkey will be left with contaminated land and ground water while some take
their profits and go away.
These types of licensing
cannot be received
easily. The Turkish company they set up for this operation is Dogu Biga
Madencilik has received so many exemptions including financial and tax related
ones from the Turkish government.
The below link also shows
CEO’s comments during an interview;

I now as a fact that such
companies cannot behave the way they do overseas. I am very upset seeing these
images day after day and the desperate fight people do. As a citizen of the
world, I believe each tree and the nature belongs to all of us.
We cannot have different
standards for different parts of the world. Canada’s forest areas are even
bigger than the entire land of Turkey.
Think about cutting close
to 200.000 trees in Canada! I can probably hear the public outcry all the way
So, why a different
standard applies to Turkish forests?
This is not moral or
ethical either. Protection and preservation of nature is a universal value for
all of us…or is it not?
Below please find more
pictures showing ordinary citizens putting up a fight. They say “forest, soil,
water and mercy”. The awareness has been growing and this news has been on the
front pages for some time.
I am not sure if this may
catch your attention. However, I have personally experienced and seen that if a
western company did something against people’s will in another part of the
world, there is chance that the citizens of that country could change anything.
To enable people to have a voice, that country needs a proper democracy and
strong public institutions. As a result, the only way out is to bring the issue
home, to Toronto and greater Canada.
The concern about nature
is universal for all of us. I would appreciate your attention to this matter and
