Hi, if you didn't already know, there are plans to put a substantial road through Choupal, the national forest in Coimbra that runs alongside the River Mondego.
There's a petition that aims to get 10,000 signatures on it by Sunday 15 February against this development in a site of national and scientific interest and I am asking all those that live in the Beiras to contribute their name and support against this road development.
You can find the petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/choupal/petition.html
And more information about the protest to the development here:
We are also meeting at Choupal woods on Sunday 15 February at 11am to form a 'Human Chain for Choupal.' If you are in the vicinity, please do come along and show your support.
