The PSOE describes as "disappointing and failed" the appearance of the Secretary of State in the Senate on the Mar Menor

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Francisco J. Oñate affirms that the positive part is that the Secretary of State for the Environment has sent him an invitation to go to the Ministry to analyze some problems of the salt lake

The socialist senator Francisco J. Oñate has described as "disappointing and failed" the appearance of the Secretary of State for the Environment on the state of the Mar Menor.

"Their answers have been very vague and very generic, two years later, in the Ministry there are more questions than answers about what should be done."

"The most positive thing about the meeting was that in the end the Secretary of State sent me an invitation to go to the Ministry and analyze some of the problems that the Mar Menor has, I will go with the hope of getting more concrete answers on actions to recover the Salt lagoon and for the arrangement of bathing areas, "he said.

"We have asked him what he plans to do to solve the pollution problem that the Campo de Cartagena underground aquifer currently represents, to which he has replied that it is still pending, but in the meantime, nitrates continue to enter the Mar Menor." has indicated.

Oñate has also asked him to speed up the implementation of an extraordinary budget for beach settlement.

"If the sea is polluted, it should be compensated for the part of the bath, and not on the contrary, fundamentally, as regards sludge removal, the construction of spas to access bathing areas and other improvements."

"On this point, he has not spoken either, so we are waiting for this meeting that we plan to do in the Ministry, where we will try to get something more concrete," he said.

In addition, the senator has asked the Secretary of State for the need for the Ministry to single out the Mar Menor, approving a specific provision in the budgets to avoid that each year is in doubt the financing of projects to have to compete with other territories.

"He has not accepted the commitment either."

"In short, it has been a failed appearance that increases our doubts that it has been understood that the Mar Menor is a state problem that requires exceptional attention." An environmental, economic, even moral damage of this magnitude requires a more determined action and less dilettante, because every day that passes, is not another day, but a worse day on the way to recover for our sea a shattered prestige, "he concluded.

Ángeles García Navarro: "The PP in the Region has not implemented Equality policies for more than 20 years: Absence is their plan"]

The regional deputy of Podemos, Maria Angeles Garcia Navarro, said that the cuts in women's policies and the insufficient law of regional equality have led women to the Region of Murcia to a situation of precariousness, invisibility and lack of protection against sexist violence "The regional government has never launched a single measure that seeks effective equality, in fact only has allocated 0.8% of the budget to these policies" this is their true equality plan.

The regional deputy of Podemos has described as "disappointing" the words of the spokeswoman of the Regional Government, Noelia Arroyo, when she announced that the women of the Government will not support the day of strike scheduled for March 8.

Thus the deputy of Podemos has alluded to that "after more than 20 years without moving a finger to ensure Equality in the Region, now the government has a Plan" and explained that "this amazing Plan for the achievement of Equality, it has been presented in a brief way, we do not know what it is, nor what is going to be done, but what we do know is that the government has only budgeted 0.8% of the budget for these purposes "

Thus, García Navarro has stated that "From Podemos, we see clearly, that the Equality Plan mentioned by the Government Spokesperson, is a mini plan, consisting of going off on a tangent so as not to be where they should be: with the women who go to go out to the street to make visible the role of everyone in society. "

In this sense the deputy of Podemos, has demanded the implementation of urgent measures that favor equality, and that have been raised from the Regional Assembly and that the executive must assume as "the implementation of once the Regional Law Equality, which reflects the term of sexist violence and makes it possible to tackle any type of violence suffered by women, and extends to other areas such as labor "and has concluded that" from Podemos we consider necessary the creation of public bodies and freelancers who do not depend on any general direction and who apply a gender perspective in a transversal manner that enables equality between men and women in different areas of life ".

Urralburu is going to ask for explanations about this matter to the Minister of Transparency, Participation and Spokesperson, Noelia Arroyo.

He must say "publicly the reasons why the Governing Council in its meeting of January 17 raised the salary of its temporary staff and cabinet."

According to the parliamentary spokesman of Podemos, it is "indecent" for the Popular Party to want to reinforce its particular "Ministry of Propaganda, while keeping the region in line with all the average data on salaries, pensions and public benefits.

Citizens do not tolerate the salaries of government advisers to swell while we have an Autonomous Community that generates poor workers ".
