Musicians’ petition

A Faro-based musicians association, which received an eviction order in February last year, has delivered a petition with more than 4,000 signatures to get the subject discussed in Parliament.

Armindo Silva of Associação Recreativa e Cultural de Músicos (ARCM) said: “We will not leave the site until there is an alternative.”

The document was delivered to the President of Parliament Jaime Gama, and a copy was also sent to the Prime Minister José Sócrates and to the Ministry of Culture.

ARCM has more than 400 members and hosts 18 rehearsal rooms for 31 bands, joining more than 150 musicians of all musical styles in the Algarve.
