Sardegna military zone environmental contamination

We have been in Sardegna almost two weeks and have learned a lot about the environmental problems that the extensive military bases are causing on this island.  The U.S. military base which housed nuclear submarines on La Maddelena island was closed but the contamination was not cleaned up.  The huge bases in Quirra and Teulada are used as bomb and missile testing areas and are causing a huge number of deaths and cancers among the people as well as deformed animals and contamination of the soil and sea.  There are three albums related to this issue and we are working on writing an article about the issues.

Here are links to the albums:

Teulada - contaminating paradise
Quirra - contaminating paradise
Cagliari - protesting against the bases
