Ponta do Sol protest

Gathering to protest over aquaculture cagesThe Diario reports that despite the hot sun today, dozens of people gathered on the Ponta do Sol pier, responding to AZIA’s challenge to protest against the announced installation of aquaculture cages in the sea off Ponta do Sol. The newspaper reports that as at 16:00 people continued to arrive at the protest.

Environmentalist associations – Cosmos, Zero and Quercus – and leaders of some political parties were present at the demonstration.

On the sidelines of the protest, the Olympic athlete João Rodrigues, now Youth Director for the Region, had taken advantage early this afternoon to practice windsurfing in the perfect conditions off Ponta do Sol.
