After ASMAA was invited to attend a public debate and open discussion in Sagres that was open to questions from the public, the Portuguese secretary of state for tourism and other dignatories from government decided to leave before questions from the public could be posed. We at ASMAA intervened ... here's the record of what happened on 17 April 2014.
A Avaliação de Impacte Ambiental (AIA) vai ser obrigatória em todas as fases de desenvolvimento de projectos de gás de xisto, decidiu o Conselho de Ministros.
ASMAA is one of the few truly independent associations in Portugal. We fight to protect the oceans, coastal zones and beaches against many risks and to preserve our natural ecosystems for future generations. But that is not all that we do, we also fight to protect the livelihoods of local residents and of local businesses across the country.
