Artist's Description

That is the name of an association to protect this river that since the 90’s has been on the edge of destruction over and over again. This is the Ebro river in Tortosa where the association was born.

In the 90’s the central government in Madrid wanted to build a megaproject of detouring the whole river from Catalonya to Andaluzia through hundreds and hundreds of km (See a map please), to irrigate farming, destroying ecosystems, natural reservs, a delta in the mediterranean sea, fish, hundreds of bird species, local agriculture, and drying out a whole river in the rest of it’s course. Fortunately, they failed.

After more than 10 years since the people’s revolt against the central government, this month (January 2011) was signed a deal to detour a part of the river to somewhere near Barcelona, again because of an irrigation system.

“Ni una gota más” is spanish for “Not one more drop” and the chosen logotipe that you can see painted on the wall is a pipe with a not. Until when will survive one of the biggest and most important rivers of the whole Iberian Peninsula? Until when will families be able to keep on going to the beach in the river to enjoy the river?
