For various reasons, Duna Parque Group will not participate in this edition of Feitur 2018 fair ... but as it is a time of celebration, and because the 3 pillars of the event are "Tourism, Sports and Nature" we will continue to provide support to the Alentejo region, and most specifically to the town of Milfontes which is where we are based. Although our contribution to Milfontes and Alentejo this year is a bit different than in the past ...
… due to the fact that we are concerned about the way that Nature and our natural resources is being mistreated in our region, we decided that the proceeds generated from lunches sold this coming Thursday at our HS Milfontes Beach restaurant will be donated to ASMAA to help fund the legal actions that they have embarked on to stop the offhsore drilling from going ahead in September (we wish to remind you of the fact that the government of António Costa decided to dispense with an environmental impact study).
We would also like to express our solidarity with the 30 organizations, including ALA (Alentejo Litoral por Ambiente) and the Algarve Tourism Region that have demanded the resignation of the Environment Minister and the President of the APA. (We are sad that the Alentejo Tourism Region has not come out yet in opposition of the exploitation of hydrocarbons on our coast).
From 11:00 a.m. to 07:00 p.m. you can visit ASMAA’s information desk which you will find in our hotel during the course of the three days event. They will gladly bring you up to date about the latest happenings in the fight against oil exploration on our coast. We invite you to call on them while you are in the hotel or in Milfontes for the FEITUR event.
