”Nordkalk, a Finnish company, has by Swedish courts been given the rights to mine for limestone in an area bordering to Natura 2000 sites (http://ec.europa.eu/environment/nature/natura2000/index_en.htm) and Gotlands biggest fresh water reserve. A number of protected species will be severely damaged. Notably, Gaffelfibbla,Apollo (Parnassius Apollo) Large Blue (Maculinea arion), Montagu’s Harrier (Circus pygargus). The Swedish EPA has appealed to the Supreme Court to stop this and has requested that the company should not be allowed to establish the site before the case is tested by the Supreme Court. In the meantime Nordkalk can continue to cut down the woods and destroy the land.”
