Petition text

We want to preserve the Barranco de Arguineguín (Gran Canaria) from the destruction that would entail the construction of the Chira Soria Hydroelectric Plant.

Why is this important?

We want to preserve the Barranco de Arguineguín (Gran Canaria) from the destruction that would entail the construction of the Chira Soria Hydroelectric Plant."

A natural space of extraordinary beauty is in danger, containing 5 protected spaces of the Natura 2000 Network; with incalculable archaeological and ethnographic values, in which, today, its inhabitants coexist in harmony with the nature around them.

Nature must be protected, we cannot continue to mistreat it. Not another square meter of our planet should be destroyed, let alone in the Canary Islands, paradise of biodiversity. Such is the natural richness and uniqueness present in the Barranco de Arguineguín, that 14.7% of its area is enshed by UNESCO; through its International Program "Man and the Biosphere" through the Gran Canaria Biosphere Reserve.

NO TO THE CHIRA-SORIA PROJECT!
