Our petition already has been signed over 10,000 times. So in only 6 days 10,000 people have shown their support to keep the Ötztaler Ache flowing freely! Many people have also taken the time to write comments on why the river is so important to them. This shows: the Ötztaler Ache is not just any river, it’s world-famous and worthy of protection! All of us – more than 10,000 people – do not want a hydro power plant, but rather for the Ötztaler Ache to keep flowing freely!
We therefore repeat our position:
Legal complaints are pending against the nature conservation permits and water law permits. These must be clarified before construction continues. For years the NGOs were denied party status – only to start with the construction the moment they finally were able bring in their concerns. We want the Ötztaler Ache to continue to flow freely in the future, and we demand an immediate stop of the constructions!
