President Juan thanked all those who travelled to Formentera for last night's gathering, where attendees discussed the situation of the sector and the expectations for the future.

For his part, Councillor Marí pledged to "help the primary sector to cope with the sharp rise in the cost of raw materials they work with, and facilitate the creation of needed agricultural infrastructure". In this sense, he pointed out that local decision makers agreed to modify the Plan for the Local Territory (Pla Territorial Insular, PTI) to facilitate construction of this type of infrastructure.

Roughly 300 students from IES Marc Ferrer took part in the seminar designed to promote values and positive attitudes and help participants manage their emotions.

Formentera hosts Teatre per a la Memòria on Civil War and repression under Franco

Next month Formentera will host three productions from Teatre per a la Memòria, a series organised by the Balearic government in collaboration with the Office of Heritage of the Consell de Formentera.

The first performance will take place at 7.00pm Saturday 29 October, in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Coinciding with the Day of Remembrance, L'Alicorn Theatre will present 'Fragments a Mallorca durant la Guerra Civil', in which the story comes to life through the Civil War memories of wounded women. The text is built around a succession of stand-alone stories united in tragedy, and each character relates the events in which he or she was the protagonist.

At 12 noon on 13 November, Noctàmbuls Theatre will perform 'Les cançons perdudes' for the crowd at the Jardí de ses Eres. Written by Jaume Miró and directed by Joan Fullana, the documentary play is also a collective work of creation in which the actors took an active role.

The third and last performance will start at 8.00pm, 28 November, in the Casa del Poble de la Mola. In addition to a narration of Federico García Lorca's last night on earth, before the artist was gunned down for his "modern" ideas, Òrbita Productions' 'Amarg' narrates the story of all those who have been repressed, persecuted or tortured for their beliefs and of individuals, ahead of their time, who decided to live free and paid dearly for it.

All shows are free of charge, with invitations available for download at Ticketib.com.
