Calheta, where further protests against aquaculture have been helFN report on another aquaculture protest on the south coast of the island this afternoon. The event was promoted by the now regular AZIA platform, following on from previous protests in Ponta do Sol reported here.

The purpose of the demonstration and march was to send a message to political representatives that there are citizens who do not agree with the existing aquaculture cages, much less increase them, on the coast of the municipality.
