Ancon Area Residents Still Trying To Protect Trees At Supreme Court Building

Environmental IssuesAida Torres, coordinator of the Reverted Area Federation expressed concern at the insistence of the Supreme Court to fell 40 trees and 10 royal palm trees to build a parking garage. "It's unfortunate the President of the National Assembly Sergio Galvez now says the opposition to the project has a political aspect," she said. She said a group of residents went to the National Assembly and they asked Galvez to speak to the President of the Supreme Court, Alejandro Moncada Luna, and before the full membership of the National Assembly he promised to discuss the plan and he promised to support the residents, so they were surprised by this change in his position. They added while speaking to RPC Radio that on many occasions they have called Deputy Sergio Galvez and he has not come, but others have attended to their requests. In 2009 the President of the Supreme Court (at that time) Harley Mitchell suggested this project, however it was suspended due to the discontent of area residents. (Panama America)

Editor's Comment: Make the builder plant 10 trees somewhere else for every one they cut down. There - isn't that a great thing for the environment? It's a shame to see how the "environmentalists" are against something that would actually be a net improvement for the environment. Cut down 50 trees, plant 500. What's not to like? Well, in reality these guys are politically motivated, and they are "against" everything. There's simply not enough parking at the Supreme Court building, everyone knows that. You have to break a few eggs to make a cake...
