zvonuri – rumours – geruechte – pletyka!

joi, 17. 01. 2008 doi indivizi deja cunoscuti organelor de politie urbanistica au fost surprinsi in flagrant delict, in incinta unei case conspirative din bucuresti, organizand un nou atentat urbanistic de tip “gradost” asupra muncipiului sighisoara! cei doi au fost vazuti stabilind contacte ilegale cu o reprezentanta a gruparii ATU (Asociatia pentru Tranzitie Urbana surse bine informate au consemnat, la doar cateva zile distanta, o alta intalnire clandestina, de data aceasta cu o membra activa a miscarii INTBAU, complotul miselesc pe care aceste grupari neo-urbanistice il pregatesc asupra actualelor legi nescrise si rele practici urbanistice ale romaniei, va fi pus in practica pe la mijlocul lunii septembrie a.c. in municipiul s dupa un plan bine stabilit, sub forma unui workshop charette de planificare urbana participativa precum si un festival de urbanism cu caracter vadit nonconformist. trebuie sa se faca totul pentru ca aceste planuri diabolice de planificare urbana, instigatoare la ecologie urbana, participare publica si voie buna sa fie oprite din timp, iar organizatorii si acolitzii lor din umbra, sa fie trasi la raspundere!
(un raport intocmit de Serviciul Urbanistic de Informatie)

two persons, wellknown to the urban planning police, have been caught recently in a secret location in bucharest while establishing illegal contacts with the ATU-movement. a few days later, the same persons had talks with a representative of the INTBAU-movement. undisclosed sources have reveiled us their intention to organize a new urban planning attack on the town of sighisoara, similar to the ‘gradost’ events in 2007, but much bigger! in order to stop these attempts to overthrow current worst practice and unwritten laws of urban planning in romania, these illegal activities should be immediatly be stopped and their organizers be brought to justice! (a report by the secret urban planning police)
