ACTION IN ODECEIXE BEACH SAYS NO TO OIL IN PORTUGAL
Saturday, June 11, 2016 in Odeceixe Beach.
The project is a collaboration with the group Preservar Algarve from Odeceixe and Maria Lucia Cruz Correia. The ideia was to raise awareness about the exploration of gas and oil in Algarve.
The group Preservar Algarve from Odeceixe, is a group that has strongly contributed to raise awareness and inform the population of the region on business arising from exploration and exploitation of gas and oil at national level.
At the time of performance participants wrote letters to request the cancellation of contracts and these will be sent to the General Directorate of Natural Resources, Maritime Security and Services (DGRM) briefly.
This action is also a response to the request of ENI / GALP consortium for Title of Use Private Space National Maritime (TUPEM) for an oil research survey starting on 1 July 2016. This hole will be 46.5 kilometers from the Costa Vicentina, to a maximum depth of 1070 meters, that is in front of the beaches of Arrifana, Monte Clerigo, Amoreira, Odeceixe, Carrapateira, Amado.
The performance appears as a moment to alert local population, beach users and as a way to pass information about the case of oil exploitation in the Algarve with focus in the public consultation that the General Directorate of Marine Resources (DGRM) opened and that is run until June 22.
