"The destruction of the natural environment continues and the corporate energy transition driven by governments with the implementation of giant wind and photovoltaic macroprojects delves into the same developmental model that has led us to the ecological and social crisis," EH Bizirike said. This can be read in the manifesto Renewable Megaprojects signed by hundreds of citizens against the current expansion and in favor of life: "At the same time that the privileges of an economic elite are perpetuated, they offer us false solutions without assuming what the true solutions would require: to totally question the energy oligarchy, to break with the imperative of economic growth, to radically transform our productive and energy model and to deepen the democratization of our territories".

The meetings and demonstration will be held in Azpeitia to show "the total support for the struggle being carried out by the Sañu Bizirik group to stop the wind power plant project that the multinational Statkraft intends to implement on the grounds of the Azpeitia, Zestoa and Errezil mountains".

All day meetings

After reception at 9:45 hours in the plaza del pueblo, at 10:00 hours will be open the workshops "Corporate energy transition and mega-projects", "Contributions from agroecology in the context of the ecosocial crisis", "Basque feminism in the defense of the land and "Loss of biodiversity: causes and consequences".

At 12:00 a round table will be held in the Azoka Plaza room to learn about the experiences of Aragon and Galicia, with the participation of the Platform for the defense of the Aragonese territory Cincovillas and the Galician group Ecoloxistas Galicia Atlantica and Verde.

At 14:30 there will be a meal (booking phone 676767516).

At 18:00 the demonstration will begin from the plaza.
