As some of you know, the Association Cabeçoasis, situated close to Marmelete in Portugal was raised by the police one evening while we were doing our weekly jam session.
Some days later we got the fine... 8'000 euros!
Because of the music, because of the people, because it was too late. Let's resume: because of the happiness and life!
This place is an important meeting point in the area. People come from far away to share ideas and projects, make music together, eat our homemade local and organic food...
Everyone is volunteer here, we just make enough money to pay the rent and taxes and keep going.
So let's be clear: we don't agree with this absurd fine and already started to fight it with the help of a local judge. We don't know yet what is going to happen but we'll do our best to only pay a part of it.
In the meantime, we have to close to use our time and energy to focus on this situation.
But the rent still need to be paid and we expect to not be able to put down all the fine...
So if you feel concern and have the possibility, help us save this beautiful place and be able to reopen it as soon as possible.
Thank you for your support and much love to you all 🙏
