March 2014: Demonstration against the Hydrological Plan for the Ebro basin

Demonstration in March 30th by the Plataforma en Defensa de l'Ebre (PDE) to reject the Ebro hydrological plan. It will start at 11:30 from Sant Jaume d'Enveja and it will finish in Plaça de l'Ajuntament in Deltebre.

The Spanish Government approved in an incomprehensible way a hydrological plan for the Ebro basin that involves building 43 new dams and 450 000 new hectares of irrigated land (now there are 950 000). The plan doesn't consider impacts of climate change nor the sediment input in the Ebro delta, threatening its survival.

This plan means an infringement of the Water Framework Directive. Catalonian population is invited to the demonstration organized by the PDE to put a halt to this plan.
