The Commission of Users of Via do Infante (CUVI) will promote a "strong horn and a slow march of vehicles" on August 14, which will pass by the place where the traditional Festa do Pontal is scheduled, which will feature this year with the presence of Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho. The «Marcha do Pontal», as CUVI calls it, part of the Vale Judeu area, but will pass by the Aquashow, at a time when the party organized by the PSD is already taking place.

«Certainly, the whistles and horns of those who fight for justice and dignity in the Algarve will be loudly heard during their visit to the Aquashow, where the Prime Minister, members of the government, deputies and other political leaders will be celebrating. introduced and defended the infamous tolls on Via do Infante», considered the commission, in a statement sent to the newsrooms.

In addition to this initiative, CUVI promised surprise actions or actions announced shortly before they were carried out, to be carried out "in the coming days", to try to force the suspension of tolls on the A22.

The meeting for the «Marcha do Pontal» is scheduled for 19 pm, in front of the café «Várzea da Mão, between Boliqueime and Quatro Estradas, next to the turnoff to Vale Judeu», on the EN 125, a place where «there is not much yet time, a motorcyclist died in a brutal road accident».

“At 19:30 pm, the slow march will start its route towards Quarteira, passing by the Roundabout of Quatro Estradas, Roundabout of the EN 396 Viaduct, U-turn at the Roundabout of BP de Quarteira, ending at Quatro Estradas”, described the organizers of the action .

Anti-toll activists are intensifying their struggle at a time when the prime minister and many members of the government are on vacation in the Algarve, a region that, accused CUVI, "they despise and penalize so much".

After considering the members of the executive led by Passos Coelho as personas non gratas in the region, last week, the commission reaffirmed its position. “By persisting in this way of acting, our governors will continue to be considered personas non gratas for a long time – with fear of protests and expressions of displeasure, this is the only way to explain so many security agents surrounding them”, he considered.
