Palermo, March 29 - Sicily's regional environment
and territory department on Friday definitively withdrew
authorisation for the construction of a contested US military
satellite communications system near the town of Niscemi in the
southern part of the island.
The announcement came from Sicilian regional governor
Rosario Crocetta on the eve of a national protest against the
project, part of a global satellite defense network called the
Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) that should aid US and NATO
military operations as well as relief efforts.
Opponents say it will be an environmental and health
nuisance and threatens world peace.
In January Sicilian regional authorities moved to halt
construction after protestors blocked trucks and cranes and
later clashed with police near an American military base.
Since then there have been other protests predominantly
involving mothers from the area.
