Zelena Akcija

While working on the Green Phone we often encounter difficulties in solving the reports of light pollution.

On the very day of the Planet Earth in 2015, citizens called the Green Phone of the Green Action with a request to help them save two Lombardy poplar trees and one cypress tree in the courtyard of their building, which several tenants wish to cut down.

At the corner of Meštrović Square and Vankina ulica in Zagreb, there used to be an open dump on public green area which was set on fire and part of the can also burnt down.

After that incident the waste was removed, but soon afterwards even greater waste was created. Citizens called the GP of the Green Action in panic, because they feared that there will be another fire.

We notified the municipal services, as well as HTV (Croatian television) team who recorded a report about it. After a few days all waste was removed.

The tenants of Kozarčev vijenac started making calls to the Green Phone (GP in the early morning of May 17th requesting help in saving a forest. Several of our activists went to the hills to help the citizens in their effort to save the forest. While we were climbing the hill, the citizens stopped the machines and chased the workers off the land. Only the citizens, a few reporters, the police and the owner of the forest in question stayed. They were later joined by the criminal police.
