Human chain for the recovery of the Mar Menor

Human chain for the recovery of the Mar Menor

Thousands of people lined the lagoon, even having to double line, and sign up for legal personality


Thousands of Murcians form a human chain surrounding the Mar Menor

Indignation, sadness and, above all, hope of being able to recover this unique ecosystem were the main reasons that led holidaymakers and residents to dress in black and join the human chain that stretched for miles along the beaches of the coastal towns and some parts of La Manga. In Los Alcázares, at the Plaza del Espejo, the demonstrators were forced to form a double queue.

One of the objectives of this meeting, called by the platform ILP del Mar Menor, was to collect signatures to obtain the legal status of this saltwater lagoon and to make its situation visible. They say that the number of signatures has increased in recent days, in June they already had 300,000 signatures, of the 500,000 they need, and they have 580 businesses throughout Spain collecting them.

Most of the links in the chain were older people and parents who were constantly recounting their fond childhood memories of the lagoon and their regrets that future generations will not be able to enjoy it as they did.

Protesters believe that this chain is an appeal that is making people more and more aware.
