No to asphalt, Perpignan

Actions against the extension of an asphalt plant – 19th October, Perpignan, France

A call for demonstration and actions is being issued by a collective of organizations fighting against the extension of an asphalt plant on vegetable farming land close to Perpignan, France. Authorities have been lying to local populations, pretending that it was about the extension of an existing gravel pit, but it obviously is about expanding the plant. Air pollution, loss of fertile soil, risks of ground and superficial water pollution… This project cannot go ahead! Come and join a day of action at the location of the plant on the 19th of October:
