Alianza Mar Menor AMARME Lorenzo Sandoval

The association Alianza Mar Menor AMARME is born out for the defense of the Mar Menor and its basin. All participants are part of the citizen movement which has achieved more than 600,000 signatures for the approval in the Spanish Parliament of the Popular Legislative Initiative (Iniciativa Legislativa Popular) for the Recognition of the Mar Menor Lagoon and its Basin as a Legal Personality. This has already become the 19/2022 Law (from September 30th, 2022), published in the Spanish Official State Gazette (BOE) on October 3rd, 2022. 

This unique place, the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest salty lagoon, has moved from being a mere object of protection, recuperation, and development, to a recognised subject which is inseparably biological, environmental, cultural, and spiritual. This marks a major milestone—as the Mar Menor is now the first ecosystem in Europe which is recognized as a subject in its own right. This citizen movement has passed on to a large part of citizens all over Spain, and now aims to keep defending the environment, the biodiversity, and the rights which have been obtained for the Mar Menor, through the Alianza Mar Menor AMARME.
