A solution can be found for mines, says industry ministry


(ANSA) - Rome, August 30 - The Italian government believes
it can "find a solution" for the fate of the Carbosulcis mines
being occupied on the Italian island of Sardinia, Industry
Undersecretary Claudio De Vincenti said on Thursday.
Miners began a strike Sunday evening 375 meters
underground in the Nuraxi Figus and Gonnesa mines located in the
Sulcis coal basin in the southwestern area of the island.
Employees of the Carbosulcis coal company are urging the
government to go ahead with plans for clean-coal technology and
CO2 storage to ensure that they keep their jobs and the mines
remain operative.
On Wednesday the workers said that they were "desperate"
and willing to take "extreme measures" at a press conference
held in front of a storage room holding 690 kilograms of
explosives and 1,221 detonators.
Union spokesman Stefano Meletti slashed one of his wrists
and shouted "is this what we have to do, cut ourselves?" in a
dramatic move during a press conference on Wednesday.
Meletti, whose wound was superficial, was hospitalized and
later released the same day.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano has expressed his
support for the miners.
