Bilbao faces a citizen mobilization again this Thursday against the companies Sader and Profersa, due to their environmental and social impact

For some time now, Bilbao has become in a recurring scenario of citizen mobilizations. The presence of the companies Sader and Profersa, both from the Agaleus group, has generated growing unrest among the residents of Zorrotza and the city in general. The criticism not only covers the location of these companies, but also the management of their environmental and social impacts. Today, once again, Bilbao residents are called to demonstrate.

Residents of Bilbao mobilize again against Sader and Profersa this Thursday

The demonstration starts at the Sarriko metro station at 19.00:XNUMX p.m., which symbolizes the extension of the problem beyond the Zorrotza neighborhood. ANDThis choice of place to start the march is significant; underlines the message from the organizers about the need to consider this as a problem that affects the entire city and not just one sector. The dock where the companies are located is a space that should be accessible and enjoyable by all citizens, which highlights the demand for a necessary urban regeneration and the connection of both banks of the estuary.

The problem of inappropriate location and poor environmental management

The residents and the Bilbao Federation of Neighborhood Associations, which is calling the demonstration, are particularly concerned about recent incidents of harmful emissions. TO despite the fact that local and regional authorities have responded to previous complaints ensuring that companies comply with environmental regulations, incidents have shown otherwise. These events have not only caused physical discomforts such as headaches and nausea, but also palpable concern for the long-term safety and well-being of residents.

Profersa's fate remains uncertain, although recent management moves suggest potential changes. At the end of April, It was published in the Official State Gazette that the Port Authority of Bilbao is considering relocating this company to a new location in Zierbena. This would be an initial step towards ceasing operations at its current location and could be a long-term solution to reduce the environmental impact in the Zorrotza area.

The uncertain future and short-term measures

However, the local community remains unconvinced and demands more immediate and definitive actions. The fatigue with unfulfilled promises and the lack of effective supervision measures are evident. The demand is not only to stop incidents, but also to ensure a clear and transparent action plan that guarantees the safety and quality of life of Bilbao residents, avoiding future effects.

This afternoon's demonstration is not only an act of protest, but a call to action by all sectors involved. lhe citizens of Bilbao deserve an adequate response and measures that not only solve short-term problems, but also ensure a safer and healthier future for all.
