Palma parents protest over possible presence of asbestos

PARENTS and students from Es Pont school in the Son Gotleu district of Palma are up in arms over a corrugated roof they fear contains asbestos.

Although the parents’ association has been demanding the roof be removed for a year and a half and the Education Department had promised it would be done by Easter, so far nothing has happened.

Sick and tired of being ignored, the parents and students have held protests outside the school, donning masks to illustrate the risk the children may be facing and carrying banners stating ‘children’s health is not a priority here.’
