The Network of Mutual Support in response to Energy Megaprojects has been denouncing since last March 1 the purchase of dirty energy to Morocco, considering a scandalous abuse and fraud of Electricity Network of Spain and the energy oligopoly.
Now that the matter has already reached the mass media and after proving that neither the Spanish Government nor the European Commission take clear and forceful measures to prevent these highly polluting and fraudulent imports from continuing to occur (There are even those who, in the height of cynicism and hypocrisy, are taking advantage of “pitching the ember of their sardine“), our Mutual Support Network has referred both to the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, and to Commissioner Arias Cañete, the letters that We publish below. In addition to updating the data on this gap, unprecedented at European level, in the Carbon Trading System or ETS, we are moving a series of questions more than pertinent to this scandal and we argue that this murky issue is nothing more than logic C Onsecuencia of the energetic model defended by those who support the increase of electrical interconnections with our neighbors from the south and north.Continue reading →

- A spark of a high-voltage cable, "quite probable" cause of the Rianxo fire
FARO DE VIGO
► As confirmed by the vicepresident of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda ► The Flames have already calcined 850 hectares since yesterday at 20.00 hours
The fire that has been affecting the Coruña town councils of Dodro and Rianxo since yesterday has destroyed 850 hectares of woodland and mount Bajo and is jeopardizing housing, which is why situation 2 has been declared. Aerial means have been mobilized, specifically four aircraft and seven helicopters, and the participation of the Military Emergency Unit has also been requested, but the proximity of the flames to the houses-in some cases the fire has been left just five meters from the Housing-has made the neighbors, who fear another infernal night, have joined the fight against fire with their own means. In Addition to the siege of the houses, the fire already forced to evacuate the students of the Institute of Rianxo by precaution after 13:00h, and the students of the Unified School of Rañó were evicted, just when the counsellor of Rural, José González, visited The area in the company of the Government sub-delegate.
The intense smoke is visible from any point of the Ría de Arousa. The Mountains affected by this fire were already in previous years and are located in the environment of the mouth of the river Ulla and an area of high ecological value, as is the Place of Community Interest (LIC) Ulla-Sar.
