Petition Summary

The petitioner states that, despite clear local opposition, the second largest producer of brown coal generated electricity in Poland is in the process of undertaking exploratory works related to a brown coal mine and potentially an adjoining power plant in the region of Wielkopolska, Poland. The Association represents local food producers and wishes to highlight the highly negative consequences of the construction of the coal mine for the local environment and community, as well as the potential irregularities in the legal process. The petition calls upon EU decision makers to consider the environmental, agricultural and social consequences of the planned mine and to intervene with the Polish authorities to highlight the irregularities related to the granting of the concession and to ensure that the rule of the law is upheld and the constitutional rights of the local residents are respected.
