CAMPAIGNERS are to stage a protest outside La Cala de Mijas Town Hall in an effort to stop oil drilling 9km offshore.

Citizens Against Oil Exploration on the Costa del Sol will meet on December 22 at 12pm to read a manifesto against the joint plans of the government and oil giant Respol.

Local PSOE mayors have already joined Greenpeace activists in publicising the risks of oil drilling, fearing a disaster similar to that of the Prestige oil tanker spill in 2002.

Concerns have also grown about the effect oil exploration will have on the Costa del Sol’s tourism industry, the leading source of employment in the area.

I take it they will be using bicycles or donkeys to get there.
