Windsurfer and Olympic champion Nikos Kaklamanakis against oil drilling

Windsurfer and Olympic champion Nikos Kaklamanakis is standing firm with us against the concession of the sea to oil companies.
“ I have learned to trust my own eyes over words, and up to now I haven’t seen anything that would convince me there is no risk [at the plan for oil/gas drilling in Greece].
We are talking about a disproportionate threat that could have immeasurable cost. We can’t discuss the destruction of a whole area in terms of economic figures. You can’t put a price on our children’s lives and the lives of the local residents. You can’t place financial interests above justice and truth. Not everything is for sale, it is not a fair ratio.”
