This is the Viking Star in Venice on 7 November 2015. It is moored at San Basilio Terminal, just a few metres from the lecture halls of the University of IUAV and the western side of the popular and densely inhabited district of Dorsoduro. It is about 8.00pm and the ship has been vomiting its black poisoning smoke since it arrived this morning, without interruption. Scandal after scandal, Venice is in the hand of a mayor and harbour authorities who keep on welcoming cruise ships in Venice without caring about the environmental and health consequences that this fragile city and its dwellers suffer. Cruise ships have to stay outside the Venice lagoon. The people living here need your help to protect Venice and to have their right to live in a healthy environment restored. Please help!
