The Last Days of Tua | The Last Crop (Manuel Queiroga)
This is the story of Manuel Queiroga, a farmer in the Tua region, which is part of the Alto Douro winegrowing region, which has been classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. Like so many others, he was forced to sell his land, so the Foz Tua dam can be built, a dam that nobody wants but everybody will have to pay for.
The mission of Platform Save the Tua is to protect the Tua Valley by raising awareness about the inconsistencies of the Foz Tua dam, which is being constructed in one of the most beautiful rivers in Portugal, with the values abided by Unesco World Heritage nomination of the Alto Douro Wine Region. We demand for this construction to stop immediately before a natural heritage spot of a high ecological, social and economic value and part of our legacy and Portuguese identity and culture suffers irreversible damages.
