The islands of the predelta have been hot fires for years. However, it is now up to Paraná (Entre Ríos) to breathe the smoke.
There was a day when Paranaans swept ashes instead of fallen leaves from trees. The pure air that the landscape city usually presents has transformed into a strange smell and toxicity . While most did not understand what it was, a vast cloud covering the local sky could be seen from afar. The answer came with the passage of hours: large fiery foci were falling off on the Santafese islands across the street. If this year seemed fictional , the Chernobyl-like context eventually enshrined it.
Of course, the instantaneity made his own and the photos did not take long to arrive. Thus, Instagram became irrefutable testimony to an irresponsible practice that increasingly occupies the covers of national and regional newspapers. In the meantime, if you Google the word ecidio, it will be possible to visualize the countless complaints that took social networks as the main platform. In that sense, hashtags serve as centers for nuclear the claims of a society filled with political voids. Among them, we read #salvemosloshumedales, #bastadequemas and #ecocidioeneldeltaparana .
Specialists explain that the phenomenon is repeated every year for this time and that its goal would be to eliminate weeds. In this way, it is intended to improve the pastures or prepare the land for cultivation. In addition, they clarify that fires usually cease in the month of October, with the arrival of rains. However, the impact on biodiversity is not reversible and the consequences on the health of nearby populations less. The extensive drought, the downstream of the river, the condition of the winds and the human desire for economic concentration are all the triggers.
Although for the capital of Entrerriana this event represents a novelty, the truth is that for the city of Rosario it ceased to be. Under this line, the locals became accustomed to reduced visibility due to smoke from fires. Even, there are days when it is not possible to detect if it is sunny or cloudy. In your case, the flames are taking on extraordinary dimensions , generating sadness and despair . The situation seems to be out of control at this point and the provincial governments of Entre Ríos and Santa Fe take responsibility for each other.
It is that the burning of grasslands takes place on the islands of the Victoria department located in front of them. As the chaos takes shape, possible names of entrepreneurs who would be provoking it are revealed. However, the authorities stated that state resources are not enough and that the containment plan is not working either. Under this framework, the tasks of the brigadistas sent to the scene were far from settling things. On the contrary, they even felt that they aroused the hunger for power more, as when they withdrew everything began again.
The indignation grows with the passage of time and the smoke too. If Argentine society stands out for something, it is for gaining unity and consensus in the most unusual moments. In a climate where the pandemic already has us tired and even generates fractures, the danger of the environment brought us back together.Passivity is no longer a valid option and populations in various cities are coming out to protest. Political inoperance is no excuse and there are rights that must be respected. Destroy must not be in vain. They should be used as kicking in raising awareness and drafting protection and preservation laws . Opportunities will emerge from crises .
