The recent floods in Kefalonia, Agia Efimia and Nifi come to confirm once again that the lives and safety of the inhabitants are not simply at the mercy of the weather, but at the mercy of the policy that does not respond to the shielding of these areas of natural phenomena.
Impressive flood protection projects, non-existent floodplain studies and infrastructures, problematic and incomplete assistance mechanisms, lack of a comprehensive and up-to-date civil protection plan, demolition and demolition, demolition and demolition , encroachment and closure of streams etc. are aspects of the policy responsible for these disasters.
It is the competitiveness policy of capital and the EU that is being implemented by all governments (SW-SYRIZA-PASOK) to commercialize land, on the one hand and cost-benefit logic, on the one hand, and considers spending. for flood protection as ineligible.

The effects are now repeatedly experienced by workers and small businesses in the populous areas of Pylaros, Sami, Nisni (Nifi), but also in other areas depending on the phenomena (Dilinata-Kutavos-Simotata, etc.). Every time large-scale landslides on public networks, such as homes and businesses, cars, livestock facilities, with scattered people, they receive the corresponding assurances of compensation-alms lost on the road.

Commitment to the required funds by clearly recording them in Municipal and Regional budgets.
Long-term forecasting planning, including rational land use, stream dredging, small barriers for the retention of loads, etc. To restore all flood-affected infrastructure at public expense, Fully compensate for all damage to private infrastructure and small businesses
