TAP protesters block roads in Puglia (2)

Rome, April 21 - Protesters returned to a Puglia construction site of the TransAdriatic Pipeline (TAP) Friday with some 300 people blocking roads leading to the site at Melendugno, a day after the Lazio regional administrative court (TAR) rejected an appeal from the Puglia government against uprooting olive trees to allow the work to go ahead. The TAP is set to bring Caspian gas to Europe. Protesters are against the removal of the trees even though they will be replanted in the same place once the work is over.
