Re: Fighting for a Clean Lagoon – Spanish Coastal Inhabitants vs. Agribusiness

Spain’s Mar Menor is the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe. But the effects of the region’s industrial agriculture threaten to destroy the natural paradise. The coastal inhabitants are tired of standing idly by, watching as the lagoon’s pollution worsens. They have formed a protest movement that can no longer be silenced.

Arte Re: accompanies environmental activists and fishermen as they fight against the agribusiness lobby. Can their protests save the lagoon?
