Dear all;

SAV is an organisation devoted to global animal welfare issues.  But that does not stop us from being concerned about natural / environmental issues also.  You can see a little about our involvement with Stara Planina, another beautiful Serbian wilderness under threat from government, at the following: 

This is another appeal, initially simply a request to ask you to give your support to a petition to save the river Rzav, which may be damned and thereafter used for what ? – mineral extraction ?, a source of water supply to towns and cities ?

Whatever, the flora and fauna of the delicate region is under immense threat by money grabbing politicians and industrialists, who, as long as they gain financially out of the project, do not care what damage they do to the environment.

They need to be informed about public opinion; please give a minute of your time to signing the petion to save the river Rzav.  The more global support there is, especially from within the EU, the more pressure that can be put on Serbian ministers.  Serbia wishes to join the EU, we wish the Serbian government to show respect to animals, nature and the environment.

Please sign the petition to save the river.

Thanks – SAV.

Full petition wording follows – English and Serbian.

Feel Free to copy and crosspost to all your contacts – global support is essential.

Building of the dam on the river Rzav will sentence the river to a death!

It took a million of years for the nature to build up the river Rzav in the form and look we have and enjoy today. And a man strives to destroy it pretty soon.

Please, sign up the Petition to revoke the death sentence to the river Rzav – the last river in Serbia unpolluted along its entire course.

At the end of 2008 on the Facebook website it was founded a Group GOD SAVE RZAV with the fundamental goal – to protect and save the Rzav river in its original form and genuine look. The river Rzav is the only river in Serbia that is absolutely unpolluted along its entire course.

As one of the shiniest pearls of the string of Serbian nature beauties, the river Rzav has been recently looked at by the eye of industry of the entire region and the country as a whole. No wonder to that at all regarding the fact that the river Rzav possess nature resource that many futurologists long ago found as the hugest wealth of the future – clean and clear water.

The river Rzav is now to be offered to alter of the God of money and is convicted to make its sacrifice! Several concrete-made “knives” (dams) are planned to be plunged into its beautiful, tender body. If that happens, the river Rzav, in its form and look well known to us, will disappear forever entering the empire of our memories only.

The new, huge water surfaces will destroy stream-rapids, cliffy Canyons, livid-green whirlpools and healing spas of the river Rzav. The climate will automatically change itself and instead of Sun we will get fog. Also, its influence on agriculture, the fundament of this region, could be only guessed, then.

Our goal is to bring together as many people as possible into this non-profitable Group turning, that way, a quantity into a quality in just a moment. Along with your help we will organize and run various actions including:

%u2022 Creations of the Petitions
%u2022 Alarming the public
%u2022 Cleaning of the river Rzav
%u2022 Chasing and driving the poachers away the river coasts
%u2022 Miscellaneous happenings in the sphere of culture and sport, etc.

Therefore, I cordially call you to join us, to visit the coasts of the Saint River Rzav and have a drink of the crystal clear water from your palm, like modern Diogens did. That way we will forever save the river Rzav, not only for us, but for future generations we borrowed it from, for only awhile.

Next year, I plan to take a walk along the entire course of the river Rzav (from its spring to its chops) and that way to make maybe the last film about the last unpolluted river in Serbia.

If interested, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:

Reka Rzav. Jedina preostala nezagadjena reka u Srbiji celim tokom.

Na Rzav, jedan od najsjajnijih bisera u niski srpskih prirodnih lepota, oko je bacila industrija celog regiona, a i sire. A to i ne cudi s obzirom da Rzav poseduje bogatsvo koje su mnogi futorolozi jos davno proglasili najvecim blagom buducnosti; cistu vodu.

Na oltar Boga Novca, prinece se zrtva zvana Rzav, tako sto ce se u njegovo prelepo i ranjivo telo zabiti nekolio betonskih nozeva (brana). Time ce Rzav, kakvog ga sad poznajemo, zauvek otici u carstvo secanja. Nove ogromne vodene povrsine unistice leprsave brzake, vrletne kanjone, modrozelene virove, lekovite banje… Klima ce se promeniti i umesto Sunca dobicemo maglu, a o uticaju na okosnicu privrede ovog kraja, poljoprivredu, moze se samo nagadjati.

Cilj Peticije je prikupljanje sto vise potpisa koje cemo podneti Republickoj Skupstitni, nadleznim ministarstvima i medijima cime dajemo konkretan doprinos afirmaciji ideje spasavanja Svete reke Rzav.

Postovani posetioci,

Bili  bismo Vam jako zahvalani ako biste, pored potpisivanaja Peticije, uneli u predvidjenu rubriku i Vasu licnu poruku, koja bi se odnosila na Rzav. Hvala!
