The magazine was finished this evening and goes to the printers in the morning – this is the cover for February.

Its Almond Blossom time here in February so its no surprise we go with that:

We have a fascinating account of how Ibiza decided that the Salinas (Ses Salinas) area shouldn’t be developed and how Ibicencans made sure that Salinas was kept as it was and is now a UNESCO world heritage site you all can still see:

“In autumn 1977 Franco had just died, the first democratic parliamentary elections had taken place and the parliamentarians were drawing up a new constitution.

In this climate of political and societal change the residents of Ibiza demonstrated their love of the island.

They rose up against plans that would have seen the construction of a development with 20,000 beds in the Salinas.

For the first time in modern Ibiza a broad opposition formed that united all classes of people on the island. At the forefront of this opposition was the demonstration of October 29th. Just a few days later the political fate of the construction plans was sealed forever. This is a look back in time to the first success of the Ibicencan environmental movement.”
