Kuzey Ormanlari Savunmasi

We have been struggling to protect the last standing forest of Istanbul against three unnecessary mega projects. Just to summarize what’s happening here:

–> A bridge, an airport and a huge canal from Black Sea to Marmara Sea is imposed by the government,

–> Civil Institutes, Scientists and environmentalist are against the projects,

–> The bridge has started to be built with its ways passing in the middle of forest. Millions of trees are cut down,

–> The airport and the canal is planned to start next year.

Here you can find photos from our protests and the forests being cut down :
