SILVES RESIDENTS SPEAK OUT TO REDUCE POLLUTION CAUSED BY AMORIMYesterday, an activist group of Silves residents held a demonstration in front of Silves Câmara, bringing the councils attention to the pollution and noise produced by the Amorim cork factory.

The group of currently close to 100 supporters are very active, divided over the following groups:

- Group of 3 persons, dealing with the formals meeting and negotiations with CCDR, Camara, Pestana and Amorim.
- Group of 4 persons: the legal team – dealing with the law, checking letters, codes of conduct and procedures, working on installation of an Association.
- Group of 20 people: the activist group – meetings, demonstrations, flyers, banners, social media.
