Joe Higgins MEP explaining why he supports the “No TAV” campaign in Italy

An interview with Joe Higgins MEP conducted during his visit to the Val di Susa in North-Western Italy.

The “No TAV” campaign is opposed to the building of a high-speed rail network through the Susa Valley which will have enormous impact on the health of the local population as well as destroying the environment in the area. Instead, of investing in and upgrading the existing rail network, which only runs at 60% capacity, the Italian government is pushing ahead with this project against the wishes of the majority of the local inhabitants.
