A group of environmentalists organised a pirate descent of the River Segura yesterday. Some of them navigated the river using kayaks and surfboards whilst the rest cycled the pathway alongside the river. To make their point, the pirates wore white coats and face masks.
Luckily for them, there was sufficient flow in the river otherwise their journey would have come to a dead halt in the reed beds. They left Almoradí at 9am and arrived at Guradamar in time for lunch.
Their demand is for a cleaner river just as it was back in the 60s when people used to bath in it.
