(en) Spaine, Aragon, Apoyo Mutuo #10 COLECTIVIDAD: DEFENDING OUR ORCHARD - Fina Casanova (El Juncar platform is life, Ribera Alta del Ebro) (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

"Mud is the mixture of water and earth that the inhabitants of this region step on after each flood. A footprint can mean a sign, a mark, a track, a trace, a scar... A footprint is a memory, memory, evocation, vestige, sediment... But there is only one thing that can never be, oblivion" ("Huellas de barro" , Ruben Ruberte Casanova). ---- In the Ribera Alta del Ebro region we are lucky to have one of the most fertile orchards on the peninsula, on which the Ebro river has left its mark throughout history.
The different route changes that the river has made along its route represent an indelible mark, in which we can read the passage of time. Proof of this can be seen in the galachos, which were later plowed to create new fields and which have been reflected in their shape, as well as in the layout of the ditches and paths.

Throughout our history. we have lived from the garden, the
we have worked and we have brought her water so that she
feed This relationship has been sculpting in our
landscape the irrigation system that we now enjoy. A lot
before the Imperial Channel of Aragon existed, our
ancestors managed, by building
the Real Acequia de Luceni, to bring water from the Jalón River
with which to irrigate the fields of the region. The first
Written data on the existence of said ditch date back
to the year 1264.

Now, if we don't stop it, the company Forestalia, with the
approval of the public administration, intends to destroy
all this that is part of who we are, of what we were and
which is most likely decisive in what
we will be They want to destroy an orchard that would well deserve
be included in the Cultural Landscapes Plan, not only for
its historical and cultural value, but also because it is
of a rich ecosystem, full of natural life.

This territory is located between the Ebro River, the
Canal Imperial de Aragón and the river Jalón and is made up of
small fields of crops traversed by numerous
ditches and dotted with wetlands, reedbeds, cabezos
stony, etc., which allows it to accommodate a large
biodiversity, that we cannot afford to

In spite of everything, the claws of
speculation, in the form of the so-called "energies
renewable". Two wind energy projects, the PEol-731
and PEol-784, made up of four wind farms (30
mills of 220 m. high), plus a substation
energy transformation, plus a line of very high
voltage (400kv), which would cross the Ebro on the way to Cinco
Villas are waiting to receive approval
administrative. We cannot ignore the conditions that
people would suffer, given the proximity of these
infrastructures to population centers.

It should also be noted that just 3 km away, Mount
that we share the regions of Valdejalón, Campo de
Borja and Ribera Alta del Ebro is already saturated with
mills. In this regard, the ANSAR association, in its
allegation to PEol-731 says: "The synergistic impact of these
two parks in the environment of 25 km around is
disappointing. According to the environmental impact study there are
97 wind farms totaling more than 1,000
wind turbines Exactly 1,125 mills, and that
they still need to add, if they are approved, 44 more projects
with a total of 1,363 MW. It is inconceivable that there
authorized such barbarity in the same area. This
serious impact, not only landscape, but mortality of
fauna, it is unassumable".

For all these reasons, last August the platform was born
"El Juncar is life, Ribera Alta del Ebro", formed by a
group of people from these towns who decided not to
conform and take a step forward in the defense of
our territory. We are born to raise awareness of what
devastating as this can be, both for the
biodiversity and for agriculture and for well-being
of the people who live in the Ribera Alta del Ebro.
We will try to avoid, with all the means at our disposal.
scope, that these projects are not sustainable and that they only
enrich the usual, are carried out.
