It was heart warming to see the support from a group of ocean lovers and protectors. We thank you on behalf of all the residents in the Algarve, as well as all the mayors that have stood as one voice against this major threat to our oceans.
Two offshore wells are due to be drilled this year (2016) in our coasts, and on land its still too early to know when it will start. Nonetheless ... we continue with the opinion that One Well is ONE Well too many ... be it at sea or on land.
I attended the “debate” meeting called by tourism of Algarve yesterday in Sagres - 17 October 2014. It was deeply disappointing. A meeting that was promoted as being an open dialogue, was anything but; a meeting where the organisers had been pre-informed that I would be attending if questions could be asked of the key people that would be present namely, Secretary of State for Culture, Secretary of State for Tourism, President of the Algarve Tourism Board, etc.
Delivered by Sergio Brandao. Sergio is an experienced trainer, surfing instructor, competition surf coach and surf school owner.

Today, while I was distributing information about the anti-oil campaign in Algarve on Facebook, I came across Jane Goodhall’s quote: “The greatest danger to our future is apathy”; and that got me thinking!

Opinion by Laurinda Seabra
When I first read this headline, to my mind come an old washing powder commercial in South Africa, “Its Good, Its Clean, Its Fresh, tra-la-la … which washes all your dirty linen whiter that white”. One must be forgiven for asking if Repsol/Partex is trying to "whitewash" the impact of their proposed gas and oil operations in the Algarve?
Let me begin by congratulating you all on your achievements and successes this year. As we all reflect on what transpired during the past year, let us continue to be grateful for all that we have - family, life, health and strength.
Looking back at all that happen in 2013, our first official year of operations - and boy, was it an eventful year? With our small team and loads of support from many people, we managed to hit the year running ... there just was no time to learn to crawl ;-)
Although we got involved in many small campaigns in the Algarve, the following were our primary projects during 2013.
We are well aware that the world will not end its dependence on oil overnight to meet our energy needs, but we believe that the phasing out of fossil fuels has to start today in Portugal – especially we have to stop the planned deep-sea oil and gas exploration and development which will negatively impact on our currently pristine Algarve waters and coast.
