Dear Rio de Aguas supporters

As David explained well, EJOLT supports this case through the atlas of environmental justice - but more recently the EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL BUREAU have offered support.

EEB is the largest federation of environmental organizations (NGOs) in Europe (we are based in Brussels) We are specialized in bringing environmental issues to EU policymakers’ attention – in name of the millions of members that we have.

My colleague working on Rural Development Programs asked all her colleagues for examples of badly spend money from pillar 2 of the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy).

I said I might have something and showed her the conflict and she was interested BUT I need to know if there is EU subsidy involved and FROM WHERE THE MONEY COMES.

If I have assurance, proof about the olive trees being funded through the Rural Development Program, I could have ensured that this case was presented to EU policymakers in a report that gives very strong critique on the CAP. So if someone does find out which EU subsidy the olive planter gets: DO let me know and I’ll see if we can still add the information at this very late stage.

Kind regards

Nick Meynen

The Last Oasis in Continental Europe. Documentary - Spanish National TV.

This is brilliant filming and great reportage. It is a "heavy duty" message really well presented.

Esto es una brillante pieza de filmación y genial reportaje. Un mensaje sobre éste nuestro "trabajo pesado", muy bien presentado.
