The Sicilian Administrative Court revoked the permission to build a US Air Force base near the city of Nishemi, where 3 giant locators that are part of a high-frequency satellite communication system (“Mobile User Objective Sistem”, MUOS) have already been installed. Century.

Court of Sicily banned the construction of an American base


“This US Department of Defense program, consisting of five satellites and four ground stations, is in the development stage and provides for satellites to be put into orbit during 2015. If this happens, the system will allow us to coordinate US naval, air and ground forces, no matter where in the world they are located, ”explains the publication.

Three other stations are located in Virginia, Australia and Hawaii.

The municipality of Nišemi made a decision to prevent the construction in 2009, practically from the very beginning of work that began near the residential sector. Residents began to hold protest demonstrations and pickets. Opponents of MUOSa supported their arguments with evidence about the dangers of the station being built for the environment and human health.

According to doctors, “the strongest microwaves emitted by 46 station antennas may in the future provoke serious diseases in Nishemi residents, such as cancer, leukemia, increased cases of cataracts, childlessness”.

In addition, according to experts, the station will affect the local flora and fauna, will interfere with medical equipment in hospitals.

“One of the four ground stations of the most modern military communications of the USA is installed in Nishemi. Should we feel more relaxed? It seems to us obvious that our land will become a priority military target, ”says the documents of the movement“ No MUOS ”.

All these years, the activists continued the struggle and, according to local media, “did the impossible: in February the Palermo court finally had to recognize MUOS as harmful to health and the environment and by its decision prohibited the continuation of work”.

From above, they tried to put pressure on the Sicilian administration and law enforcement agencies, but to no avail.

And recently, the "Legal Administrative Council of Palermo rejected the protest of the State Bar and confirmed the illegality of the construction of the American military station in Sicily," the publication said.

Now on the site of MUOS, the townspeople dream of opening the Museum of Ecology and Science, which would attract an additional stream of tourists to Nishemi.

      Well done, what can I say. But there will always be those who are ready to lick the sciatica with a striped monkey and endanger their inhabitants in order to install such objects.

      Sicilians understand that this station is not only a threat to the health of residents, but is also the target for destruction as an American military facility. It is a pity that this is not understood by citizens of many countries who agree to place such objects on their land.

    The main thing is that the Sicilians would not be tempted by a bag of green candy wrappers.
    Or even some preferences. Bo, wherever the Americans go in, then it’s very difficult to wipe them.

    The key phrase ... it is clear to anyone (even if it is a European) that such objects will be destroyed in the first place, if that .... Indeed, the museum will be hundreds of times safer ....

      Our judges are not elected, as in Sicily, but are appointed by the federal government .... all judges, with the exception of the world ones, are signed by the President of the Russian Federation and nothing else ....
      You can remove a judge in Sicily only at the end of his term of office or for a criminal offense ... For principledness with a dispute with Rome, he can only face life judging ....

    Whoever read Mario Puzo probably remembers that the Sicilians never considered themselves Italians, that they are ethnically Catholicized Greeks, hence their rejection of everything that comes from Rome going back centuries. The same Cosa Nostra this desire of local elites will protect themselves from external expansion.

    It's just that we have too many "guest workers" among our officials who do not care how people will live after their term of office. And they usually go somewhere, in the same Europe or Cyprus.

    A respect for the Sicilians !!! We should learn from them local patriotism.

    To learn patriotism it is necessary to force our officials. But there are doubts that they can be taught this. For our liberal officials in the ave (Dvorkovich, Shuvalov, Kudrin, Chubais, Naebulina, Siluanov, Ulyukaev, Manturov) this concept is not amenable to understanding. With * est la vie-as the French say.
