Fulgencio Gil: "we demand security for our farmers through a national pact that commits at least the two major parties" If they turn the tap on our farmers, they leave the food we consume to third countries. (07/03/2018)

Are you really so blind as not to see that this issue demands a pact among all Spaniards? |

The Mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, said he is confident that the demonstration that took place this morning in Madrid in support of the irrigators will help all political parties to be aware that the situation we are suffering in the Guadalentín region It is absolutely untenable.

Fulgencio Gil has affirmed that today in Madrid we claim what belongs to us.

Water is not a private or private good, it does not understand acronyms or borders, it is a national good.

Measures have been established so that there is no lack, but now we ask for security and certainty.

Lorca, and the Spanish Levant in general, need transfers from other basins, transfers, desalination, water bank and all the measures that constitute an alternative for obtaining water.

The Mayor has indicated that the voice of Lorca has been heard today in Madrid.

This act must serve to make all Spaniards aware of how bad we are going through it.

As Mayor of Lorca I demand security and certainty for our farmers.

It can not be that after so many years it has not been able to offer concrete solutions to the irrigators, because while it is being discussed precious time is lost and the earth dries up.

Lorca and Guadalentín Valley need water.

When other areas of Spain need a resource, they are supported and the solidarity between citizens is taken for granted.

We want that in the case of water it is also like that.

We have to put an end to the perpetual water stress that we suffer.

Fulgencio Gil stressed that citizens have to know that if we do not support the farmers and ranchers who with much effort supply our pantries, we are condemning to fill it with products from abroad, of lower quality and reduced guarantees.

We have to commit ourselves to the workers in the primary sector who produce the fruits, vegetables, vegetables and meat that today supply our pantry.

Spain can not turn its back on the primary sector because it would be an act not only of tremendous lack of solidarity, but that we would be condemning ourselves to buy foreign products, with the consequent damage to our economy.

If they turn the tap on our farmers, they would be leaving the food we consume to third countries.

Are you really so blind as not to see that this issue demands a national pact?

The First Edil recalled that when a Spaniard turns on the light he does not ask where this electricity comes from, the same thing should happen with water.

But the reality is that unsupportive and selfish interests have imposed on common sense.

So you can not continue.

It is true that to date there has been no lack of water, but the forecasts are very worrying, and it is time for at least the two major Spanish parties, PP and PSOE, to be able to close a definitive agreement.

That is what has been achieved when other issues of national priority have been put on the table, and in the water issue it becomes extraordinarily precise and urgent.

This is what the Spaniards expect to see from their political leaders.

We are facing a historic opportunity.

The First Edil, who has participated along with the irrigators in this act along with representatives of the Municipal Executive, has positively evaluated the approval of the works for the opening of drought wells, a measure that we trust will serve to continue advancing.

The Vice Mayor, Francisco Montiel, has presided over the concentration that has been developed at 12 in the Plaza de España, following the recommendation of the Federation of Municipalities of the Region of Murcia.
