The full text of the speech made by the Municipality of Bağcılar and the IMM CHP Council Member Ümit Yurdakul at the İBB Assembly Chairmanship;
Mr. President, Distinguished Members of the Assembly; In recent days, a public spot of the Ministry of Agriculture has begun to turn a lot in television and radio. "Our ancestors have protected their agricultural land for centuries, come to Turkey to leave a livable world for our children together to protect agricultural land," he said of returning to this most beautiful spot in these public; Mi Our land is not the legacy of our ancestors, but our grandchildren are entrusted to us değil Did we maintain agricultural land? We couldn't protect it, we wouldn't turn this spot. Dear friends, why have I made such an introduction? At the meeting held last month, Mr. Kadir Topbaş returned to the parliament to re-evaluate the zoning plan amendment related to the Yedikule vegetable gardens. I expect this sensitivity to continue. However, every event about Istanbul, every project, every zoning status, every cultural, sporty, artistic event here in Istanbul's local parliament so we can discuss. But it is not;
See, in Istanbul, there are projects called 'giant' or 'crazy' close to the 60. Channel from Istanbul to urban transformation, 3. From Istanbul to Istanbul, from Çamlıca Mosque to city hospitals, from yacht harbor to Yassı Ada, from Eurasia Tunnel to Haliç Port, from 3. Those who make these projects, unfortunately, do not even consider the IMM assembly. Many of the VETO-eating projects in this parliament are also receiving the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, TOKI or the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Journalism. See most of the projects they have as the relevant institution behind them. If we don't have a promise to make decisions about our city, why are we here?
Mr. Kadir Topbas's rebellion, isn't it? No one is asking the president, who advocates the collection of powers in the city. Do you know what it's like not to be taken into consideration? If you see yourself as the head of this city and show your work as heroic when it comes to your place, I can understand that you are rebelling, Mr. President. Consider us as you feel like the cartoon hero who is about to punch us into a gap when he rebels and shouts.
So when did he rebel, president? Ince Regulation on construction of spatial plans “. Almost all changes in development plans are now attached to the ministry, from urban areas to social infrastructure areas, to industrial and public institutions. The immovable property close to 70 in Istanbul, which is included in the scope of privatization, is thus linked to the ministry. In other words, the central authority is strengthened and local governments are disqualified. This power, however, promised that the local governments would be strengthened, not managed from the center, but locally. We see what happened. Then why are we here, friends, or this council to terminate or connect to the ministry.
Before the ink of the “spatial plans making regulation” dried out, there were changes that would lead to an environmental massacre called EIA. This regulation, which has emerged from the EIA to change, has been changed 17 times since it came out. We have transformed the Environmental Impact Assessment into a Turkish model, which we cannot adapt to the EU harmonization laws. You remember that the Constitutional Court had stopped the amendment that brought the EIA exemption to many major projects, which I mentioned above, which were tried to be included as a temporary Article 3 in the environmental law, on 3 July 2014. This decision of the Constitutional Court was officially ignored, and provisional Article 25 was added to the regulation published on November 3. Why is that? What is the reason for this persistent behavior? This cunning attitude, which disregarded even the Constitutional Court, had one goal: Walk every way to the construction industry! However, in the past few months, did the Minister of Economy, Mr. Ali Babacan, say that we should stop growing with construction? Alright what now? I hope that the central government, which does not take Metropolitan into consideration and does not even listen to the decisions of the Constitutional Court, will change the name of the Ministry: Ministry of Environment, Urbanization, Construction and Rent.
Have you ever thought about what makes the EIA exemption meaning friends? Now, 100 km and six railway projects will pass without any EIA. Dip scan, sea lakes from the removal of materials will pass the EIA. HEPP projects will be opened. Public housing projects, hospital projects, golf facilities, shopping malls will pass without EIA. Do you know why? Even in Salt Lake, facilities that destroy nature will be exempt from EIA. EIA exemption will come to dismantling forest areas, urban transformation areas, industry and energy facilities. Interestingly, in the 5 days after the changes in the EIA were approved, it was an earthquake in Akkuyu where the nuclear power plant was built in Akkuyu, which was exempted from the EIA in order to get a gesture to Putin. You can't imagine what could happen in a bigger earthquake.
In my words, I would like to point out that the central administration has become even more authoritarian and that the decentralization of local governments, especially Istanbul, is not correct. I want all of you to see that this process will be a blow to the local government, and that this assembly will be dysfunctional, and that it will become a mechanism that only raises hands. From here, I expect the central authority, especially the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, to recognize the local parliament elected by the votes of the people without fear of any matter concerning our city and to transfer the power. For those who are on the side of the public interest, I want you to know that we will not give up our struggle to protect the rights of our ancestors but the rights of our grandchildren to live in the healthy environment, their forests, coasts, rivers, lakes, that is, all the living creatures living in our habitats.
