Fire in Lousame

Sad forest fire in Galicia, Spain

Despair. Anger. We just wanted to cry. About four years ago, Galicia lost around one-third of its forests by man-caused fires. A developing crisis and old misconceptions had led to wrong decisions in order to gain a few bucks quickly.

Lousame is one of the biggest municipalities in the region. In June last year, we could see this massive smoke cloud coming out of a burning forest. Once again, flames were among us.

Is this non-sense going to stop at some point or are we supposed to wait and witness all this destruction? It’s been enough already!
