Concerned leaders of coalition citizen Aysen Reserva of life (Coalition ARV) were shown before the confirmation of the resignation of the director of the Aysen Conama, Jose Pablo Saez, who will take vacations and leave the charge from August 24. This will mean that when HidroAysen enter its addendum to the system by the end of this month, the regional Conama will be leaderless, even more so when there surely will be another mega hydroelectric project in processing, the energy Austral. What guarantees have today the inhabitants of Aysen that work will be properly in those conditions? expressed thereon the Coordinator of the Organization, which brings together several groupings of the Aysen Region that have a critical view of the dam projects and electrical wiring in Patagonia. The leader explained that complex foot that remains the regional Conama joins a series of irregularities that have taken place in the evaluation of the EIA of HidroAysen, where is they took decisions under political pressure and not considering the critical technical observations of the organs of the State with environmental competition. Hartmann stated that they are known pressures from some government authorities, which lobbyists of HidroAysen, under which had to act the outgoing director of Conama, who thus becomes the fuse of terrible decisions such as allowing that company to respond the comments when services pointed to the rejection – that have called into question the environmental institutions and are mortgaging our region. For his part, Miriam Chible, President of the private corporation for the development of Aysen, also a member organization of the ARV coalition and the Patagonia Defense Council, said that the current problem is not with competent public services, who have done an excellent job technical resisting even pressures of all kinds, but with regional political authority which has carried out a notorious and rude interventionism. Let us hope that in this If the new director is someone of high technical level and to meet the challenges facing the region. The worst thing would be to install in that post to an operator and fast tracker of transnationals..
