Taking to account in the case of the Algarve which is traditionally an area which suffers from lack of water and is affected by the serious risk of earthquakes, its a very serious challenge that the Portuguese population needs to address by holding Portuguese leaders to account. We all have a responsability not only to ourselves but also to all the future generations to come to act and to act now before its too late.
It's time for all of us to stand-up and be heard, for our concerns to be seriously addresses - because the alternative is loosing everything that each one of us has worked for our entire lives, and leaving nothing of value for future generations.
You have a choice.
Do NOTHING or Stand-up and BE HEARD. Time to FIGHT for YOUR rights.
