Praileaitz will not get enough protection.

The (now undemocratic) West Basque government has decreed that the Magdalenian site of
Praileaitz will have only a minimal 65 meters perimeter of protection from the activities of the quarry, well below the 100 meters asked by the government of Gipuzkoa, not to mention the 500 m. that Jean Clottes demanded.

The explosions of the quarry can well damage the cave, that includes some Magdalenian art, and there is an unexplored gallery that will get no protection whatsoever.
