The president of the Canary Islands asks for dialogue

Precisely the president of the Canary Islands condemned this Monday the incidents in Cuna del Alma. “Unfortunate events that occurred in the Puertito de Adeje, in Tenerife. Dialogue is always the right way to solve problems. Never violence. Let everything that happened be clarified, ”he wrote on his Twitter profile.

Cuna del alma, which intends to urbanize with hotels and 420 luxury villas (among other infrastructures) more than 400,000 square meters in a ravine and beach in the south of Tenerife, has two negative reports (from 2014 and 2017) and a sanction proposal by the General Directorate of Heritage of the Government of the Canary Islands, which confirmed, after a report from the Island Council, that an important archaeological site had been irreversibly destroyed and without taking any protective measures. The company has confirmed to this newspaper that it has appealed this sanction proposal.

In addition, in the environmental impact reports presented, up to seven protected plant species that are found in the area that is already being urbanized do not appear.
