May 7th, 2019

It has 12 aquaculture facilities and a fingerling production plant

The Region is a benchmark in national aquaculture, with a production of 57.5 tons per kilometer of coastline.

In addition, it is the first autonomous community in the breeding of bluefin tuna and sea bass, and the second in total production of aquaculture species.

The Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Angel del Amor, participated today in the XVII National Congress of Aquaculture, held in Cartagena, where he explained that "last year, the region produced about 15,600 tons of fish in its facilities of aquaculture, which meant revenues of more than 120 million euros ".

This supposes a growth of more than 1.000 tonnes of fish with regard to 2017 and an increase of the economic value of 5.8 percent more.

The Region has 12 aquaculture facilities operating in water.

Specifically, one is located in Águilas, seven in the aquaculture estate of San Pedro del Pinatar and four in the polygon of El Gorguel, in Cartagena.

Also, on land there is a fry production plant located in Águilas.

"This sector generates nearly 1,000 direct jobs," said Del Amor.

In 2018, the production of seabass stood out, with 7,670 tonnes, tuna with 3,519 tonnes and seabream with 3,198 tonnes.

The Region exported a total of 49 million euros of both fresh and frozen fish, especially sea bream, sea bass and tuna, the latter much appreciated in eastern countries, such as Japan, for its high quality and total food security .

"We have numerous species with a consolidated market that every day new ones are incorporated like croaker," del Amor added.

The councilor stressed that "to achieve blue growth it is necessary to unify at the state level environmental criteria for the authorization of aquaculture facilities."

Isabel Franco: "That the PSOE use Zapatero in this campaign is a provocation of bad taste"

May 7th, 2019

The candidate of Citizens believes that the former president "ninguneó and strangled the development of the Region with its management and the repeal of the transfer of the Ebro "

The candidate for the presidency of the Autonomous Community for Citizens, Isabel Franco, has described as "provocation of bad taste" the visit in pre-election key that today has turned the president Rodríguez Zapatero to Murcia.

"We think that the PSOE must be very desperate and lacking in talent to use Zapatero in the Murcia Region as a campaign key", added Isabel Franco, who believes that ZP "has not strangled the development of the Region, not only through its disastrous management of issues such as regional financing, but also with the repeal of the transfer of the Ebro.

The PSRM-PSOE should reflect before boasting of having in its campaign with an ex-president that the only thing he did was to put a concrete slab to the development of our Region. "

World Day of the Red Cross and Red Crescent "For Humanity"

May 7th, 2019

The motto chosen by the Red Cross for this celebration is "Por Humanidad".

It aims to place the person as the center of all the activity of the Organization.

The person (vulnerable) is the reason for all that work and also the person (voluntary and supportive) is its essence and fundamental pillar.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent of 190 countries work every day to continue to strengthen their connection with communities, while forging partnerships at the local and global level that promote peace, health and well-being, sustainable socio-economic development, care for our environment and ecosystems, energy poverty and the reduction of inequalities, among others.

This year, the Red Cross will dedicate the next commemoration of the World Day to highlight the solidarity and humanitarian motivation, to help each person who suffers some adversity have the opportunity to have living conditions say, for the mere fact of being, in the margin of any circumstance.

In addition, during this day is intended to give prominence to those who are at risk of going unnoticed, of falling into situations of exclusion and vulnerability as may be the elderly, migrants and refugees, women who suffer gender violence, unemployed people who face to different barriers to access the labor market, girls and boys living in impoverished homes, among others.

Behind all these people there is a unique and exclusive story, there is a desire to excel, but also difficulties in being able to express their needs and have their voices heard.

In Red Cross we support all of them, with the aim of alleviating their suffering.

Red Cross performs an action increasingly committed to the feelings, perceptions, emotions, abilities, expectations, hopes and living conditions of each person.

Because in addition to knowing and attending to material needs, it is essential to perceive and address other equally vital needs, such as affective and emotional ones.

On this World Day of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, which is commemorated on May 8, we will also highlight the important work of volunteering as one of the driving forces of our movement, nearly 12 million active volunteers. Everyone, thanks to their solidarity and humanitarian values, provides support to the most vulnerable groups.

In Spain about 200,000 people work as volunteers.

And with all this strength and solidarity, in view of the numerous humanitarian challenges that we see every day around the world, and due to different circumstances, we commemorate the World Day of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, emphasizing the urgency of expressing and share a feeling, which must always awaken our conscience: that of humanity.

Origins of the World Day

Shortly after the end of the First World War, Czechoslovakia (then formed by the Czech Republic and Slovakia) proclaimed, during the Easter of 1922, a truce of three days in order to promote peace throughout the world.

The aspirations that led to this initiative were already drawing what would later become the World Day of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (CR and the MLR).

"Our Red Cross wants to prevent diseases so as not to be obliged to cure them, it also wants to prepare our society in order to avoid wars, instead of having to bear its serious consequences." We all know how important is the moral energy that generates and propagates the Red Cross to all sectors of the population, if the action that it deploys year after year could reach the whole world, what an immense work in favor of peace we could do! "

(Henry Dunant)

It was in 1934, during the course of the XV International Conference of the Red Cross, held in Tokyo, when the principles and the intention of this initiative were approved;

known as the Red Cross Truce, it was recommended that it be generalized to all National Societies.

It would be necessary to wait until 1946, once the Second World War and during the XIV Meeting of the Board of Governors of the League of Red Cross Societies, to implement the Tokyo proposal and to establish the celebration of an international day in the same date for all National Societies.

Two years later, in 1948, he was elected on May 8, the anniversary of the birth of Jean Henry Dunant, a Swiss citizen who in 1863 founded the first World Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva.

The day would change several times of appeal to become the "World Day of the Red Cross and Red Crescent," which was held for the first time in 1953. Each year a different theme is selected to commemorate the World Day, devoted to the multiple concerns of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.

At present, the World Day continues to be an excellent means of disseminating the humanitarian action of the different Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies, as well as an official commemoration that recalls the ideal of solidarity and mutual aid that it brings together under the two emblems to hundreds of millions of men and women who know how to make solidarity the most beautiful of virtues.

History of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement

In 1859, a Swiss businessman named Henry Dunant was horrified by the sight of thousands of wounded soldiers lying on the battlefield of Solferino in northern Italy.

Without delay, he urged the local population to come and help the soldiers on both sides.

In 1862 he published the work "Recuerdo de Solferino", in which he made two solemn appeals: firstly that, in times of peace, relief societies should be formed whose nurses had to be prepared to intervene in time of war;

and secondly, that the volunteers in charge of attending the medical services of the army were recognized and protected by virtue of an international agreement.

These ideas soon became concrete in what was born under the name of "International Committee for Relief of Wounded Soldiers", which later became known as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Following an invitation from the International Committee, representatives from 16 countries and four philanthropic institutions met in 1863 at an International Conference in Geneva.

This event promoted the foundation of the Red Cross as an institution.

Henry Dunant and the other members of the Committee also wanted the Red Cross and its ideals to be internationally recognized and an agreement to guarantee the protection of medical services on the battlefield.

To that end, the Swiss Government decided to convene a Diplomatic Conference, which took place in Geneva in 1864. Representatives of 12 countries participated and a treaty was approved, prepared by the International Committee and entitled "Geneva Convention for the Improvement of Luck. of the wounded in the armies in campaign. "

This agreement was the first treaty on International Humanitarian Law.

This Conference also approved a legal framework that established some fundamental goals of the Red Cross: effective action to help the wounded;

vehicles and health personnel should be considered and respected as neutral;

and they should also be protected in war conflicts.

In 1921, the International Committee of the Red Cross would adopt four Principles: Charity, Universality, Independence and Impartiality.

After the Second World War, a Diplomatic Conference deliberated for four months before approving the four Geneva Conventions of 1949, which included, for the first time, provisions relating to the protection due to civilians in time of war and that they would be completed in 1977 with two additional protocols currently in force.

But it was in 1965 when the XX International Conference of the Red Cross defined and approved the seven fundamental principles currently in force: Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Volunteering, Unity and Universality.

Components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is active in almost every country, making it the largest humanitarian network in the world.

The Movement is an organization composed of three key components:

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), a body based in Geneva and founder of the Movement that, in addition to deploying operational activities, is the promoter and guardian of International Humanitarian Law.

It also ensures the application of the Fundamental Principles and is primarily interested in the victims of armed conflicts.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, founded in 1919, is responsible for inspiring, stimulating, facilitating and promoting the activities of its 190 member National Societies.

It coordinates the international humanitarian assistance provided by National Societies in favor of victims of natural disasters or those originated by human beings outside the conflict zones.

The National Societies of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent, which currently total 190, act as auxiliaries of the public authorities in the respective country and provide services such as disaster relief, health, social assistance and first aid, among others.

In addition to working in the country itself, the National Societies make available to the ICRC partners who are responsible for organizing the transport and distribution of humanitarian aid, managing cooperation projects in the field, etc.

To be part of the Movement, all National Societies must be recognized by the ICRC.

Later, they can become members of the International Federation.

Likewise, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is organized through three organs: the International Conference, which meets every four years and is the highest deliberative authority of the Red Cross;

the Permanent Commission, organ that prepares the International Conference in collaboration with the National Society that is the seat of the Conference and that, between Conferences, coordinates the work of the ICRC and the Federation;

and the Council of Delegates, which presents proposals for the positions of President, Vice-Presidents and Secretaries of the Conference, decides the order of topics and decides on the proposals sent by the Conference or the Permanent Commission.

The Geneva Conventions and International Humanitarian Law

Limiting and preventing human suffering in times of armed conflict is the purpose of International Humanitarian Law.

The essence of this right is contained in the four Geneva Conventions and in their Additional Protocols.

Today, almost every country in the world is a Party to these Conventions.

On August 22, 1864, the first Geneva Convention was signed, playing a decisive role ever since in the humanization of conflicts and the remedy of their effects.

The current Conventions, in force since August 12, 1949, as well as the Additional Protocols were signed in principle by 61 States, joining a total of 194 countries that are now States Parties to them.

The Political Department of the Swiss Federal Council is the depository of the Geneva Conventions.

The governments that wish to join or ratify them are directed to it.

The protection guaranteed in the Conventions applies to the following categories of persons: wounded and sick of the armed forces in the field (Convention I);

wounded, sick and shipwrecked of the armed forces at sea;

(Convention II) prisoners of war (Convention III);

and civilians in time of war (Convention IV).

The Additional Protocols of 1977 supplement the Geneva Conventions and their purpose is to place limits on the use of violence and protect the civilian population, thus enhancing the norms that govern the conduct of hostilities.

In this way, the Governments that are Party have committed themselves to taking care of friends and enemies in a similar way, respecting the human being, their honor, the rights of the family, the customs, the religious convictions and the dignity of the woman;

authorize delegates to visit prisoner of war camps, civilian internees, and to interview without detainees with witnesses;

prohibit inhuman or degrading treatment, hostage-taking, extermination, torture, summary executions, deportations, looting, acts of violence and the unjustified destruction of private property.

History of the Spanish Red Cross

The Spanish Red Cross was officially created on July 6, 1864, but previously Spanish representatives had attended the first international meetings in Geneva.

When the Committee of the Five convened in 1863 the First International Conference, Spain was one of the first to register, being represented by the Count of Ripalda and the senior doctor of Military Health Nicasio Landa.

From the first moment, Their Majesties the Kings of Spain exercised the High Patronazgo of the Institution.

The first international aid action in which the Spanish Red Cross participated was in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, but its first major intervention took place in the Third Carlist War, at the Battle of Oroquieta in 1872.

Between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the Spanish Red Cross produced successive reforms that gave rise to a more operational Red Cross.

Thus, in 1898 the first general mobilization trial of the Spanish Red Cross took place in Tudela (Navarra), and two years later the Supreme Assembly was created as the governing body, whose president and Commissioner Regio would be General Polavieja.

In 1918, the first six hospitals were created in Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Granada, San Sebastián and Ceuta.

The first School of Nurses was founded in San José and Santa Adela in Madrid.

In a panorama of generalized deficiencies in sanitary matters, the Red Cross network would have a special meaning.

During the Spanish Civil War of 1936, the Red Cross was in charge of protecting and assisting the detainees of both sides, both by the Spanish organization and by the delegates of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

His work in the fields and prisons and aid to the civilian population is still remembered by the Spaniards.

And it is that even in times of peace, the Spanish Red Cross continued its mission of assistance, without ruling out international actions.

In recent times, the development of the Red Cross has been especially significant and the Institution extends to the entire national territory.

In 2014, the Spanish Red Cross celebrated its 150th anniversary, and after these years it remains faithful to its commitment to the most vulnerable people, getting closer to their needs and helping them from the proximity and closeness, putting the focus of their attention on the economic crisis , but without forgetting its role in other vital areas of action such as International Cooperation or Health and Relief, historical hallmarks of the Institution.

The Institution has 52 Provincial Committees and 17 Autonomous Committees, 648 Local Assemblies, more than 213,000 volunteers and more than one million members.

Origins of the Red Cross Gold Medal

The Gold Medal of the Red Cross is a distinction that was included, along with other distinctions, in the first Statutes of the Spanish Red Cross of 1868 and that is currently included in the Organic General Regulations.

It is a recognition to the people who have excelled in the development of voluntary activities or in the support, collaboration, defense, dissemination and fulfillment of the principles and objectives of the Spanish Red Cross.

It is granted by the National Committee or the National President.

Fundamental principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement

The Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement were proclaimed by the XX International Conference of the Red Cross in 1965, and celebrate its fiftieth anniversary this year.

Since then, they have been updated and approved by the XXV International Conference of the Red Cross in 1986.

The principles define the identity and peculiarity of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, guide our decisions and our work in all situations and allow us to pass on to the most needy populations and work with them.

The humanitarian needs and the places where the Institution provides its services are increasingly complex.

However, its Fundamental Principles maintain their constancy, guide their actions and guarantee that they always work at the service of the communities without distinction of race, creed or color.


The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which has given rise to the concern to provide assistance, without discrimination, to all those injured in the battlefields, strives, under its international and national aspect, to prevent and relieve the suffering of men in all circumstances.

Tends to protect life and health, as well as to respect the human person.

It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace among all peoples.


The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement makes no distinction of nationality, race, religion, social status or political creed.

It is dedicated solely to helping individuals in proportion to their suffering, remedying their needs and giving priority to the most urgent ones.


In order to maintain the confidence of all, the Movement abstains from taking part in hostilities and, at all times, in controversies of a political, racial, religious and ideological nature.


The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is independent, and auxiliary to the public authorities in their humanitarian activities, subject to the laws that govern the respective countries, National Societies must, nevertheless, preserve an autonomy that allow to act always in accordance with the Principles of the Movement.


It is a voluntary relief institution of a disinterested nature.


In each country there can only be one Red Cross or Red Crescent Society, which must be accessible to all and extend its humanitarian action to the entire territory.


The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in which all Societies have the same rights and duty to help each other, is universal.

The universality of the Movement reflects the adherence of all its components to the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. common values ​​that are the seed of rapprochement and peace among peoples.

Spanish Red Cross in Zaragoza

The official birth of the Red Cross Assembly in Zaragoza took place in 1870. On a cold winter day, on December 6, the foundation document of the Territorial Organization was produced with the creation of the "Assembly of the International Relief Society military and civilians wounded in campaign and armed struggle of the Language of Aragon ", based in the Aragonese capital.

At that moment, the first stone of an unstoppable humanitarian movement was laid, with almost 150 years of history, inexorably linked to this land and its people.

Only four years later, in 1874, the province had 126 people, men and women, of all ages and social backgrounds: pharmaceutical merchants, doctors, carpenters, shoemakers, engineers and students.

Thus, the movement was making its way towards civil society.

The first important action with civil population took place a year before, in 1895, with the overflow of the river Jalón in Ateca, Alhama and other riverside towns.

With this event, a decisive turn took place when extending its humanitarian commitment with the whole society.

The ONCE joins the 175th anniversary of the Civil Guard with 5.5 million coupons dedicated to the Benemérita

May 7th, 2019

In the draw of May 13

The traditional coupon ONCE joins the tribute received by the Civil Guard for its 175th anniversary.

Five and a half million coupons for Monday, May 13, will spread across Spain the image of the Benemérita.

Juan Carlos Morejón de Girón, Territorial Delegate of the ONCE in the Region of Murcia, Jesus Arribas, Colonel Chief of the 5th Civil Guard Zone in Murcia, and Josefa Navarro, Deputy Secretary General of the Government Delegation in the Region of Murcia, have presented this coupon accompanied by Teresa Lajarín, President of the Territorial Council of ONCE in the Region of Murcia.

175th Anniversary of the Civil Guard

This presentation is framed in the commemorative events of the 175th anniversary of the creation of the Civil Guard.

With these acts, the Civil Guard wants to transmit to the public the values ​​of public service and the constitutional principles for which the Body has worked since the day of its foundation.

Encouraging the culture of security in today's society and continuing to protect the free exercise of rights and freedoms from honor are the objective and mission of this Institution, guarantor of citizen security.

On March 28, 1844, the Civil Guard is created.

For his organization, Field Marshal Francisco Javier Girón y Ezpeleta, Duke of Ahumada, is designated.

Initially it is composed of 14 chiefs, 232 officers and 5769 guards divided into 14 Thirds.

In the summer of 1844 the recruitment of the first aspirants began.

In the presentation of the Body, a new uniformity could be seen, in which an original three-cornered hat of French origin called attention: the tricorne that, with time, would become one of the representative symbols of the Civil Guard and of our country.

His first international mission was in 1847, when Portugal, in civil war, requested the help of Spain, which sent a Cavalry unit of the Civil Guard to Oporto.

Queen Isabel II created in 1853 the Company of Young Guards, which provides protection and education to the orphans and children of the Corps and helps the formation of new guards.

It is the origin of the current College of Young Guards Duke of Ahumada.

The Civil Guard lives closely the history and evolution of Spain.

The arrival of the railway leads to the body escorting trains since 1886. In 1922, the anthem of the Civil Guard is sung for the first time.

The Civil War divides the Body.

In 1940 a General Staff was created within the organic structure of the Corps formed exclusively by officers of the Army, from which the Civil Guard became dependent.

After the war, the phenomenon of the maquis or guerrilla anti-Franco arises.

The Civil Guard is entrusted with its eradication.

In 1959 the Traffic Association of the Civil Guard was created.

Begin the specialization of the Body: the Mountain Service, the Underwater Activities, the Helicopter Group, and the Explosives Deactivation Service are born.

With the arrival of democracy, the Civil Guard is ascribed to the State Security Forces and Corps, conserving its military nature, but not being part of the Armed Forces.

In these years the Benemérita faces the fight against terrorism.

In 1981 there was an attempted coup led by high military commanders whose execution was supported by some Civil Guard officers very sensitive to terrorist aggression.

The coup failed due to the absolute lack of support from the rest of the Armed Forces, the Civil Guard itself and the rest of society.

In 1986 the Civil Guard is defined as an armed military institute, dependent on the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defense.

Its own function of citizen security extends to the territorial sea, control over weapons and explosives, State Fiscal Protection, pursuit of contraband, surveillance of traffic and transport, protection of coasts, borders, ports and airports and conservation of nature and environment.

In 1988, the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) was created.

And in 1991 the Maritime Service of the Civil Guard was born.

In 1988, the incorporation of women into the Armed Forces was regulated, opening the way for women to enter the Benemérita.

The Civil Guard has participated in 52 international peace missions, to which it has contributed 5,818 agents, mostly under the auspices of the UN and the European Union.

Currently the Civil Guard is composed of more than 82,000 women and men, always evolving and modernizing to adapt to the current situation and face any type of threat.

In addition, it will have an exhibition of products and applications of the materials produced on its site.

Among all the activities, the practical workshop 'Let's make a polymer' will stand out, in which students between 14 and 16 years old have the opportunity to make their own polymer.

Another activity that generates great interest every year is the talks given by a group of engineers of the company in which they tell their professional experiences in this sector in order to encourage and guide young people to technical careers and help break the gender gap in engineering.

This year, we will have the series of informative talks "Mujeres en pie de ciencia" that serve as career guidance and promotion of STEM vocations among girls, carried out by the SABIC Women's Network Cartagena (SABIC Cartagena women's network).
