Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, July 18, 2020 – Residents of Marcelji and communities close to the Mariscina waste management centre, located north-east of Rijeka, gathered outside the entrance to the facility to protest against the stench and pollution that make their lives difficult.

One of the protest organisers, Davorka Simcic, said that the people of the surrounding communities had been enduring the stench from Mariscina for years and that it was particularly intense in summer.

“Our patience is running thin,” Simcic said, adding that workers at the waste management centre were exposed to poisoning just as much as local residents.

She said that this time they had invited politicians to their protest to fight for the rights of the local population. “We want them to raise their voice for us in the Croatian parliament. We want parliament to become a frontline in the fight against Mariscina,” Simcic said.

The protesters called upon the environment minister to shut down the Mariscina waste management centre as soon as possible.
