Bierzo Aire Limpio Starts Crowdfunding to Support the Legal Defense of the Environment

The NGO holds an assembly that includes a state-wide meeting against waste incineration, debates on wind and solar macro-projects, and musical performances. Also, as a prelude to Environment Day, the NGO Orbanajo Project will be repainting the manholes, which are already worn out, around the upper area of Ponferrada. These are the awareness messages that began to be painted some time ago.



On June 4th, the eve of World Environment Day, the NGO Bierzo Aire Limpio will celebrate its annual assembly with a day of coexistence, vindictive and festive, in which a new crowdfunding campaign will be launched on the website ‘My grain of sand’ to support the legal defense of the various conflicts denounced by Bierzo Aire Limpio, especially against the multinational Votorantim, owner of Cosmos, against Forestalia and against the heat power plant of Compostilla.

The assembly of Bierzo Aire Limpio members will begin at 10 am at the headquarters of the Puente Boeza Neighborhood Association

Then, at 11: 30 hours will take place a virtual and face-to-face meeting of the Platforms against Incineration throughout the State, giving continuity to the one held in 2018. Remember that the eighth Meeting of the State Coordinator of Platforms against Waste Incineration, which was attended by the world reference against incineration Paul Connett, approved the ‘Declaration of Ponferrada against Incineration and for Zero Waste’, signed by more than fifty organizations and environmental groups from all over Spain.

Five years later, Ponferrada will host a second meeting to review and update that declaration, “incorporating new challenges and commitments, given the urgent climate and energy threats and problems that affect us, such as macro wind and photovoltaic parks, desertification or the degradation of our mountains, forests, and rivers,” they explained.

After this debate, the day of coexistence will conclude with a lunch and musical performances by José Ángel and the fantastic Jorge Pombo, Diego Serrano, Subversiones, and a Jam Session.

Repainting of the Orbanajo Project’s manholes

Also as a prelude to Environment Day, the NGO Orbanajo Project will be repainting the manholes, which are already worn out, around the upper area of Ponferrada. These are the awareness messages that began to be painted some time ago with phrases such as “the sea starts here.”

A movement that the promoter of the Orbanajo Project, Pablo Ovalle met in France and launched in Ponferrada. The meeting to participate in the repainting will be at 11 am (if it does not rain) at the door of the Gil y Carrasco Institute. It is necessary to bring gloves.
