Eivissa Diu No (in Spanish Ibiza says No) emerged as a citizen movement of protest against the prospections that the Scottish company Cairn Energy projected just a few years ago to 35 miles from the Ibiza coast. Rage and popular indignation gave way to a tide of images of people who appeared naked and, at times, covered with oil black, showing a poster that prayed the already famous at that time 'Eivissa Diu No'.
What started as a complaint on the part of Ibizan society in the face of this situation, it spread to such an extent that exceeded borders and media. Quickly around Ibiza the allegations began to circulate which Alianza Mar Blava prepared to try to stop this nonsense. And they were signed, go if they were signed. Specifically, according to the platform, some 100.000 allegations were received during the entire campaign and only 56.700 of them came from the island.
Their tireless work led them to organize demonstrations which were not only held in the largest of the Pitiusas and involve various political parties of the island in signing of the 'Document of political commitment to achieve a Law for the declaration of the Mediterranean as a Free Zone for Prospecting for Hydrocarbons', prepared by Alianza Mar Blava, Eivissa Antipetrolífera and Eivissa Diu No.
Like in the best movie endings, they won, but they did not settle for it and currently have not lowered their guard in order to shield our sea. Thus, they continue in their efforts to bet on an energy model that eliminates the use of fuels fossils in the long, medium and short term.
“This group is a movement of people who love Ibiza and that they want to give back a part of the love that the island has given us ”. Precious premise with which they define themselves in social networks to continue with a fight that, unfortunately, will never stop but will not stop adding support.
