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.”

The people of Albatera have the right to try and stop this. 4 years ago they built the rubbish plant just outside el campello it has been nothing but problems to those who live in the area. the toxic smell of a night as well the day fly’s and insects the police are being called upon all the time. but sadly they are powerless to stop this.it’s no good asking local government officials as the people are ignored even when you protest. it also seems that more and more people are becoming ill from fumes omitted from the area. even those who visit the area for their holidays and keep coming back have now said enough is enough the smells are so bad its no good sitting outside in the hot summer. once they increases the size of this plant the smell will be carried further a field towards Benidorn
