ASMAA found out with less than 24 hours notice that Australis Oil & Gas was running an info session in Leiria on 31 October at 10h30 in the morning. We were very curious to hear what they had to say. Because as as far as we knew this was the first information and disclosure session run by Australis (officially) addressing their drilling concession areas of Batalha and Pombal.
Apesar do facto de a ASMAA, em junho de 2016, fevereiro e dezembro de 2017, ter levado 42.295 objeções públicas à Assembleia da República Portuguesa, contra a concessão de licença de perfuração à ENI / Galp, encabeçando assim uma grande petição popular contra a referida concessão, as petrolíferas representadas pela nata das sociedades de advogados da ENI / Galp, com o total apoio do Governo Português contestaram a nossa Ação Popular desafiando a legitimidade da nossa ação jurídica, ignorando que a referida Ação Popular interposta pela ASMAA representa todas as pessoas e organizações que se opuseram oficialmente à perfuração planeada em Aljezur.
In spite of the fact that ASMAA, in June 2016, February and December 2017, represented 42,295 public objections in the Portuguese Parliament against the granting of drilling licence to ENI/Galp, a pack of big legal guns employed by ENI/Galp with the full support of the Portuguese government, is challenging the legitimacy of ASMAA’s Class Action, representing all those individuals and organisations that objected to the planned drilling in Aljezur.
This is the last opportunity that we all have to put a STOP on Galp/ENI offshore drilling endeavours. And the only thing that will STOP them is a COURT ORDER. Nothing else! The time to ACT is NOW!
