NO TO DUMP: Protesters take message to Valencia.
PROTESTERS have taken to the streets of Valencia to denounce the plans for the landfill site in Albatera.
Albatera No’al Vertedero headed up the march “to defend our future progress and dignity and to stop this barbarism.” They were joined by platform groups and supporters from Cox, Elche, Villena, Campello, Foncalent and the Ecologists in Action Group.
They called on the Valencia Regional Government and the Ministry of the Environment to stop the landfill site and protested against the Integrated Waste Plan which they say will “enrich a few at the expense of many citizens and their health.” They criticised the “disastrous management of the waste that is taking place throughout the Valencian Community.”
