Aglandjias’ Akadimias Park sees fresh protest

A fresh protest by environmental and civil society groups took place on Wednesday against the planned cutting of trees in Akadimias National Park. The tree-cutting is meant to facilitate the widening of Aglandjia Avenue.
Demonstrators entered Aglandjia Avenue and blocked car traffic, and also decorated trees marked for cutting with flowers or crocheted ornaments.
Agandjia Municipality has said it had done its best to limit the number of trees to be chopped down to the minimum, in keeping with its long-standing commitment to protect parks within its boundaries.
