Local communities oppose Rosia Montana being put on UNESCO list

The communities of Rosia Montana and Alba County reject emotional pressures aimed at putting Rosia Montana on the list of sites protected by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and call for observance of their right to work and a decent living, according to a release remitted to Nine O’Clock. According to a letter sent by the Rosia Montana community, the actions towards Rosia Montana being put on the UNESCO list grossly encroaches on the local autonomy law and principles, while also disregarding the need for citizens being consulted on local issues. The letter specifies that a Socio-Economic Development Plan has already been passed stipulating the long-term development of that commune by exploitation its gold-and-silver deposit, which would offer employment to locals.
