19.8.2017: OPEN COMPLAINT TO THE ROYAL DUTCH AIRFORCE, re the participation of the Royal Dutch Airforce in nightly military air noise raids all across north east Germany, by use of ED-R 401 MVPA NE, in August 2017
Dear Madam or Sir,
As a citizen-driven „emergency-information and monitoring project“ on ED-R 401 MVPA NE, we run observations and are building something like a log of the increasing military air training terror that has been on the rise throughout north east Germany, ever since the secretive activation of routine military air training within the military air training zone ED-R 401 MVPA NE. I trust the Royal Dutch Airforce is aware of the unique character of the above zone, of features, such as the mixture of civil and military aviation, the lack of rudimentary transparency tools, such as the Web AUP, still active for the rest of military air training zones throughout Germany.
I would like to complain, on behalf of everybody contributing to this website (edr401mvpa.wordpress,com), about the participation of the Royal Dutch Airforce in nightly military air noise raids across all regions and areas affected by the secretive military air training zone ED-R 401 MVPA NE.
Being a EU citizen myself, I feel obliged and entitled to complain with EU Air Forces directly, that are being observed utilizing the secretive military air training zone ED-R 401 MVPA NE. Please understand that this website is operating under Pseudonyms only.
ED-R 401 MVPA NE had been secretly activated for routine military air training in autumn 2013.
At the time, huge parts of north east Germany, successfully de-militarized after the fall of the wall in 1989, heavily protected by various levels of natural habitat protection schemes, with a strong economical branch of eco-tourism developing, were suddenly turned into a „military core area“ (Bundeswehr speech). And nobody knew about it! Nobody knows about it, up until today! The zone affects EU natural habitat zone, National Parks and even UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites, such as Müritz/Serrahn!
Is the Royal Dutch Airforce aware of its attribution to the large scale militarization of previously quiet and tranquil areas of the north east of Germany? Is the Royal Dutch Airforce aware of the fact that the used zone had been established and activated in secrecy?
The recent nightly military training sessions in low altitude terrorized residents and visitors, spoiled the few warm summer nights that are to be enjoyed up north and added to the daily terror of military air training noise by Bundeswehr and others.
By the way: A large portion of visitors to the natural regions of north east Germany come from the Netherlands. International visitors are seeking nature-experience, silence and and quietness at night, relaxation, not fighterjets in the skies, up until midnight.
I am lost as to why the Royal Dutch Airforce feels the pressing urge to pollute one of the last few natural areas of central Europe, sending in F-16 fighterjets in low level flight exercises above densely populated areas. Right in the middle of the night.
I request that the Royal Dutch Airforce halts the use of the undemocratic military air training zone, that had been imposed upon the residents of north east Germany secretly, in autumn of 2013.
For detailed information on how this zones looks like for affected citizen, please refer to the in-depth documentation on this secretive military zone at https://edr401mvpa.wordpress.com . The text is in German, but I trust you will be able to have it translated correctly (and if you do – I would be pleased if you were able to make a copy of the dutch translation available to the public).
I would kindly like to request a full review on whether the lack of democratic standards of transparency and participation of citizen beforehand of the activation of such a zone meets the moral standards of the Dutch government and the EU standards of citizen participation – that I hope the Royal Dutch Airforce is out to protect.
I would, on behalf of citizens seeking advice and information on unexplained military noise throughout their home-regions, suggest that the Royal Dutch Airforce does not participate in a questionable quest by Bundeswehr to militarize even the last remaining parts of the country that have, so far, not been part of rampaging militarisation.
I am sure that most citizen here do not even know that the Royal Dutch Airforce is partaking and adding to the military noise in ED-R 401 MVPA NE.
This is because there has been no information whatsoever on the recent nightly noise sessions by military aircraft above the Mecklenburg-Lakes region, the islands of Hiddensee and Rügen, the Brandenburg Lakes region, the UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites affected by your aircrafts noise and exhaust pollution.
I am sure this is below Dutch standards of transparency. I am sure the Netherlands would not impose a zone like ED-R 401 MVPA NE – and use it accordingly – on its own citizen.
Thank you for your consideration. I am looking forward to your reply.
