The level of toxic fumes in Murcia has gradually increased since the past century. This comes as a consequence of burning coal and fossil fuels, especially from cars.

At the beginning of the century, CO2 emissions were at their lowest rate. Later, the progressive advent of motor vehicles in our city has made pollution increase. Nowadays, it is at its highest level and has surpassed the 400 parts per million. This is an unbearable situation.  For this reason, the town hall has decided to activate an information protocol for the citizens. These measures aim to reduce this problem in our city.  

We the citizens can do something to solve this problem. Here are some tips:

-We must stop using so many plastic bags and choose reusable shopping bags. The use of reusable bags is better for the environment, because you don’t need to use a new plastic bag every time you go shopping.

-Stop using the car for short distances. Having is a short walk is cleaner and healthier for you.

-Riding your bike is more environmentally friendly than many motor vehicles. Moreover, there are bicycle lanes you can use for free and it’s easier to park.

 

Ginés García Millán

Originally from the town of Puerto Lumbreras Murcia, Ginés García Millán spent much of his childhood and adolescence in the hotel run by his parents in his hometown, played as a goalkeeper in junior categories of Murcia before focusing on the interpretation, his real vocation. He moved to Madrid to learn at the School of Dramatic Arts. It did not take him much to stand out among his classmates, for that reason, once graduated, one of his teachers, offers him the possibility of debuting in  theater; This moment turned out to be a prologue to a brilliant theatrical career. He debuted on the big screen in 1996 with Tabarka, and although he shone in films like Mensaka, The Year of the Deluge, Steps or 23-F, he has reaped his greatest successes on television, a medium in which he debuted at the beginning of the 90s and who has seen him grow in series such as "All men are equal", "Marriage with Child", "Heirs", "Love in Troubled Times" or "Adolfo Suárez", among others.

Garcia Millan is one of my favorite actors because I've been watching him on TV since I was a child, and also because the way he plays his roles seems to me impressively good, to the point that makes you doubt if he is acting or not.

Maldita Nerea is a Spanish pop rock music group that was born in Murcia. In my opinion it is a good group.

The Maldita Nerea group is formed by Jorge Ruiz, Luis Gomez Rafa martin, Tato Latorre and Serginno Moreira. In 2003 they started giving small concerts in Murcia, and they continued with performances in Salamanca venues. There, their first concerts were very successful, but their true success began in 2007 with their song “The Secret of the Turtles”.

You’ll never guess where I was these spring holidays … Murcia! Early in the morning, my cousin and I took the bus to the town centre.

We went to Murcia that day (1 st Tuesday after Easter holidays) because it was the “Bando de la Huerta” in Murcia. There was a big party there, and people dressed up just like people used to do in the 21 th century. There were a lot of activities too!

For example: The election of the Queen of the Garden - consisted of passing certain general culture and communication tests, and if you pass them, you’ll take the Crown ofAzahar” (lemon blossom).

At night, we went to the “Barracas”-they were establishments where you could eat the typical Murcia food, for example: Black pudding and sausages. (There was a lot of meat!).

We didn’t stay until very late because we were very tired, so we went home early.

It was a fantastic day! We had the best time!
