Hundreds of people took part this Saturday in the human chain created around the Mar Menor, as part of an event to symbolise an “embrace” of this natural space and demand its recovery.

Specifically, the mobilisation was called by the Popular Legislative Initiative (ILP) movement for the rights of the Mar Menor, together with organisations, associations, groups and neighbours.

According to sources from the ILP movement, the aim of this ’embrace’ is to eradicate the pollution of the lagoon, considering that the demands made so far “continue to be put on hold and without significant changes”.

In this sense, the organisers have complained that “the permanence of heavy metals continues in the southern arch, the wadis full of nitrates, phosphates, pesticides, herbicides and other polluting chemicals that flow into the Mar Menor, which together with the polluted groundwater attack the lagoon and its inhabitants”.

A few hours before this symbolic act, a water festival was held in the Plaza del Espejo in Los Alcázares with children and adults, while the neighbourhood association ‘La Manga-Veneziola’ is planning a peaceful march on the same day, starting at 19.00 hours, from the Aldeas de Taray to the roundabout at the Puente del Estacio.

As a novelty, this year different groups from other countries and from all over Spain have been called to join the ’embrace’ under the slogan ‘All the seas, the same sea’.
