The greens of Warsaw have started a campaign of blocking the
cutting of trees on the the eastern bank of the Vistula involving sit-ins
and sabotage. The official pretext for the cutting of trees is
that thick vegetation is a danger in case of floods, but it is suspected
the real reason is the construction of a highway. It would seem that it
is a usual corruption scheme where a state agency spends public money to
save costs for private enterpreneurs who will build the highway.

The whole of the eastern bank of Vistula in Warsaw has so far been
left alone. The area has been more or less deserted since
that part of the city was destroyed during Napoleon's wars.
The wild vegetation of the bank is the nesting ground for dozens
of species of birds.
