The Algarve’s environmental agency (APA Algarve) is warning people to stay away from clifftops after a huge rock fall took place at Praia da Luz on Wednesday morning (October 14).

“Luckily no one was hurt, but people must be aware that cliffs are even riskier when it rains,” APA Algarve president Sebastião Teixeira told the Resident.

Photos of the impressive rock fall were sent to us by reader Jackie Dawson.

“At the largest point of the cliffs, the rock face completely collapsed with a huge roar falling into the cove and sea at the end of the beach,” she said after witnessing the scene.

Teixeira told our newspaper that maritime police have closed off the area around the rockfall, and that it is expected that the sea will clear away the debris.

“This is how nature works. It’s a natural phenomenon that becomes more common during the winter. These kinds of cliffs can experience rock falls even five days after it has rained,” he explained.





Wow, that is a big one!

Portuguese MPs force minority government to quit over austerity
Alliance of socialists and communists brings down centre-right coalition weeks after general election

Portuguese MPs have forced a minority centre-right government to resign after rejecting its austerity policies less than two weeks after it was sworn in.

The coalition of the prime minister, Pedro Passos Coelho, had emerged as the largest party in a general election on 4 October but lost its outright majority in a public backlash against austerity measures adopted following a €78bn bailout in 2011.

The vote to bring it down follows the moderate Socialist party forming an unprecedented alliance with the Communists and their Left Bloc allies, giving the grouping 122 seats out of 230 in Portugal’s parliament.

The Socialist party’s internal political committee announced late on Sunday that it had recommended its MPs support a motion to take down the government.

Party leader Antonio Costa is now expected to become prime minister in coming weeks.

Eastern mafia force women into prostitution to.

They are organized in a network and are dedicated in various areas of the Alentejo and the West, to labor and sexual exploitation of tens of compatriots - from Eastern Europe. Force men to agricultural unpaid work in inhuman conditions; and women to practice prostitution.

It is a mafia that Tuesday was dismantled in an operation of the Judicial Counterterrorism Unit. There are 18 detainees: 13 men and five women, between 20 and 63 years. The PJ has identified more than 100 victims.

The operation, with 28 searches, focused on Torres Vedras area and in the districts of Beja, Serpa and Odemira, where the arrests took place, for serious crimes such as human trafficking, robbery, pimping, forgery and conspiracy.

Detainees should be present on Wednesday the Court of Sintra, the region where he was born the investigation of the PJ. At issue, in other situations have been detected especially in the Alentejo, is labor exploitation in farmland - with men and women to be subject, under torture, long hours of daily work without pay or meals. Immigrants are kept in captivity.

For women, they are placed in alternate homes and forced into prostitution, with the proceeds of the sexual exploitation business to revert exclusively to the network elements that keeps them under physical and psychological duress.

Shocking; restoring European borders would make it a lot harder for people traffickers to operate.
