Oil & Gas: How to Get a Local Voice to Stop Fracking in Algarve
Apr 4, 2016 — Dear friends
Expats make up nearly 20% of local residents in the Algarve ... should your voice not be heard?
Calling ALL EXPATS.
If you do not get control of your town and council representatives, you will have no protection against frackers (such as Sousa Cintra’s Portfuel for example) drilling wildcat wells in your own backyard. No protection from damaged roads. No way to prevent frackers from dumping fracking waste on your doorstep, or dumping radioactive toxic drill cuttings in local landfills, and so much more …
To see what is happening in Aljezur look here:
Now, that you can see that things are heating up, more than ever we need to raise funds to get to the streets to inform the local populations, gather signatures for our petitions, distribute flyers, etc … but without funds it is difficult to do it.
We thank all that have donated last week. We've raised 210€ but are still 290€ short - (We had hoped to raise at least 500€ to do the next bit of work that is planned for April.)
So, please be generous and DONATE now 25€, 50€, 100€, 250€, 500€ ... or any amount you would like to give.
