|I just read in a portuguese newspaper the governement has back off on the plan to have some high tension eletric cables going nearby homes (south of the country) due to demonstrations and some quite active civil organizations pressure.
They are now reviewing an "alternative route" for the cables...
It's a small victory - for a small high tension connection, no doubt a drop in the ocean if I compare the map of Portugal with that of the U.S.A. but it brings a smile to my face knowing the people of that little country, in the economical shambles that they are (compared to other EU countries) can still put up a fight.
Somewhere else on the news piece it reported a local mayor demanding the removal of another high tension cable to a different location.
And of course the government says these cables aren't harmful at all and even have "scientific testimonies" to prove it. Right.
Here's the link - it's in portuguese - where you can see a pic from the demonstration.
P.S. I wanted to link the pic itself but it's in a weird format
