(LaPresse) On the occasion of World Environment Day, Roma Capitale renews its support for the StopGlobalWarming.eu campaign, the European citizens’ initiative against global warming, which aims to collect 1 million signatures by 22 July to submit to the European Commission the proposal to shift taxes from labor to the environment, establishing a European “carbon tax”. That is: the polluter pays. From 4 to 6 June a new video created by the StopGlobalWarming.eu campaign will in fact be screened in the Urban Vision spaces of some iconic places in the capital such as Campo dei Fiori, Via del Corso and Via Condotti. The initiative is supported by Roma Capitale, with the aim of raising awareness among all citizens on the issue of global warming and what we can do to fight it. The video underlines the urgency of concrete action, such as supporting the StopGlobalWarming.eu campaign, to make the Earth “breathe” again, a victim of the devastating effects of climate change. “Rome and Dublin are the first two European capitals to have supported the European Citizens Initiative www.StopGlobalWarming.Eu”, said Marco Cappato, promoter of StopGlobalWarming.eu, “As promoters of the initiative we are happy and proud, because Rome is an international point of reference on a cultural, artistic and religious level, which can pave the way for the adhesion of many other realities in Europe. As a great city in Southern Europe, Rome is also – for better or for worse – a borderland of the great migratory pressures, increasingly due to the damage that climate change is already causing in Africa and the Middle East, forcing millions of people to abandon their lands. The enthusiastic response that the StopGlobalWarming.Eu Initiative has received is therefore a signal particularly important and politically significant “. STOPGLOBALWARMING.EU to date has obtained the membership of 60 thousand European citizens. Among these also Mogens Lykketoft, president of the UN Assembly at the time of the Paris Agreements, Navanethem Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights from 2008 to 20914, 3 former European Commissioners (Emma Bonino, Violetta Bulc, Vytenis Povilas Andriukaitis), of the committee of EarthDay (the organizers of World Earth Day), a network of over 100 Italian and European mayors and many many personalities from the world of science, culture and entertainment From Oliviero a Toscani to climatologist Luca Mercalli and artists such as Claudia Gerini, Camilla Filippi, Giorgio Marchesi, Nicoletta Romanoff, Gabriele Salvatores, Biagio Antonacci, Gabriele Muccino, Kasia Smutniak, Pif, Fedez, Tessa Gelisio, Mara Maionchi, Edoardo Bennato, Nina Zilli, Neri Marcorè, Giobbe Covatta, Sergio Cammariere, Davide Oldani, Giulia Innocenzi, Cristiana Capotondi, Arisa, Pierluigi Pardo and many others).
