On the occasion of the commemoration of the World Asbestos Victims Day, the environmental organization issued a statement.

The document regrets that more than three decades after passing a law that banned the asbesto extraction, import, production and trade and all products containing it, in this country people continue dying because of it.

Andrea Minutolo, scientific manager of Legambiente, commented that “the situation is incresingly dramatic and confirms the need to change the course, with incisive and urgent measures to secure and recover polluted buildings and territories, with more adequate information and an awareness-raising campaign”.

He added that regardless the harmful effects, actions against asbesto “seem not to be a government´s priority.”

He stressed that the National Recovery and Resilience Plan barely makes reference to investments in the agro-solar farm, without possibilities to allocate resources to stop its use, prioritize the citizens´ health and protect the environment.
