Demonstration at Bellver Forest
THE fight to save Bellver Forest in Palma is stepping up a notch with Mallorcan animal party Progreso in Verde accusing Palma Council of trying eradicate cats from the area.
In addition, last Sunday (October 31) more than 200 people arrived in the area to take part in a demonstration against the proposed park organised by Associació Son Quint-Parc natural de Ponent.
All environmental and Green parties on the island are opposed to the cutting down of trees to allow for the building of much enlarged children’s park although the Council has indicated that many of the trees being removed have been killed by an infestation of the Tomicus Pine Beetle.
According to reports from environmentalists at Progreso in Verde, the Palma Council recently arranged for officers of the National Police National Police to remove feeders and drinking troughs from the controlled colony of cats in Bellver to the anger of those responsible for feeding the colony and keeping it controlled.
It is expected that demonstrations and written assaults over the actions taken by the Palma Council will continue on a regular basis although he likelihood of a change policy by the Council seems improbable.
