Since 2H00am on 21 January that ASMAA’s websites have been under constant attack by some very nasty and bent on destruction hackers, determined to break them.
So many people have told us that they were struggling to find ASMAA's new charity, upcycle shop and community hub in Portimão. We took notice, and to make it easy for you to find us, here's detailed maps, photos and directions.
Comissão Europeia - Comunicado de imprensa - Bruxelas, 25 de janeiro de 2018
European Commission - Press release - Brussels, 25 January 2018
ASMAA was informed that last week, on the 25 January, the BE requested during a sitting of parliament, documentation from Ministry of Economy and from the DGRM as a result of the extension autorization of the ENI/Galp consortium drilling contract in the Alentejo Basin off Aljezur coast.
A very interesting article in the Express online newspaper of today (28 January 2018) which raised some eyebrows. A dispute between two organs of the state? Really? We don't think so, but nice try from the government PR machinne.

But thanks to our work together – supporters, members, activists and volunteers – we have a lot to be proud of in 2017.
The underhanded manner in which governments and their colluding partners act in subversive brainwashing campaigns, in an endeavour to advance their oil and gas exploration agenda in Portugal, can at times be truly disgusting.
We appeal to all our catholic brothers and sisters spread across the globe: The “Sanctuary of Fátima”, in Portugal was included in an oil and gas exploration contract, which makes provision for the use of hydraulic fracturing technologies (Fracking). It must be stopped.
'I had to leave' - Former state seismologist testifies that officials coerced him to alter research on induced quakes! This article are extracts from court document which you will find in the attachment section below.
Rumours that Galp/ENI would be seeking to have its Drilling Works Program (Proposed Scope of Work) for 2018 submitted for comments to local municipalities started to surface on Wednesday the 8 November.
At ASMAA we have spent a lot of time debating about tackling this issue at this specific time. Should we, shouldn’t we? A big dillema ...
