AVOIDING WILDFIRES: The activist group will meet to discuss prevention of any further catastrophe.
AN activist group forged in the aftermath of the wildfires that shook the Costa Blanca North over the summer has started its campaign of action.
Natura SOS Marina Alta has called for a public meeting to discuss how to prevent such a catastrophe unfolding again.
The group of environmentalists emerged following the fires that destroyed dozens of homes and hundreds of hectares of land, especially in Javea and Benitachell.
They are also campaigning for the broader cause of ensuring that the Marina Alta is offered the active protection of people who care about cleanliness and sustainability.
They are calling for public support in cleaning beaches, and pressurising the government to protect wildlife from rogue farmers, vandals and businessmen intent on profiting from fires and other destruction of natural land.
On November 29 they will hold their first public meeting in Denia, where there will be street performances, theatre and workshops.
