The fires in Cefalu – What happened?

The fires in Cefalu has been news all around south Europe. Over 5,600 hectars has burnt down and areas around Cefalu and Madonie mountains looks like a war zone. The fire was set by purpose, rumours says it was ex-employees from the Forestale (the Forest Protection Organisation). Sicily has the largest number of employees in all public offices and the italian government tries to cut down the expenses by not hiring more and not renewing contracts. And this year the government made a large cut in the budget and those who did not get the contract renewed got of course angry. So it seems that some of those who did not get a new contract, set the fire on purpose on the very dry soil. This is quite common in Sicily. Unfortunately.

The result is that hundreds of houses, schools, restaurants, hotels ecc has burnt down and thousands has been evacuated, including tourists. This hits also the tourism much as the area in tourist areas is just black and ashes. All this to press the government to hire people that at the end does not do anything in the office. Just sitting there caused by nipotism, or perhaps do not even show up at work, on government salary.? — Videos below —


Br?nderna i Cefalu har varit p? nyheterna runt s?dra Europa. ?ver 5600 hektar har brunnit ned och omr?den runt Cefalu och Madonie bergen ser ut som en krigszon. Branden var anlagd, rykten s?ger att det var tidigare anst?llda fr?n Forestale (Forest Protection Organisation). Sicilien har det st?rsta antalet anst?llda i alla offentliga insitut och den italienska regeringen f?rs?ker sk?ra ned kostnaderna genom att inte anst?lla mer och inte f?rnya kontrakt. Och i ?r gjorde regeringen en stor s?nkning i budgeten och de som inte f?r kontrakten f?rnyade ?r naturligtvis arga. S? det verkar som om vissa av dem som inte fick ett nytt kontrakt har s?tt eld p? det redan torra marken. Detta ?r ganska vanligt p? Sicilien. Tyv?rr.

Resultatet ?r att hundratals hus, skolor, restauranger, hotell ecc har brunnit ner och tusentals har evakuerats, d?ribland turister. Detta drabbar ocks? turismen mycket eftersom omr?det i turistomr?den ?r bara svart och aska. Allt detta f?r att pressa regeringen att anst?lla m?nniskor som i slut?ndan inte g?r n?gonting p? kontoret. Folk som bara sitter d?r p.g.a nipotism, eller kanske inte ens dyker upp till jobbet, p? regerings l?n. – Video nedan –
