Fulgencio Gil: "the work that we develop from the City Councils is fundamental to promote the achievement of a National Water Pact" (13/03/2018)

The reality is that the drought does not understand political acronyms and is affecting very seriously those who maintain the production of food for the pantry of much of the world.

The consequences of not achieving a common policy in this regard would be very hard.

The Mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, has claimed the work of the municipalities in favor of achieving a National Water Pact that allows security and certainty to our farmers.

The City Councils, as the administration closest to the citizen, are the ones who suffer most from this situation, sharing the requests of our professionals in the primary sector and suffering from the lack of a common national policy that allows us to overcome a situation as disastrous as the one we are currently experiencing. .

If we should be the City Councils that we erase the political differences in the water issue, let's accept that challenge.

Fulgencio Gil, who has raised this issue during the meeting that the Federation of Municipalities of the Region of Murcia has held this morning in our city, has stressed that the materialization of a national consensus on this issue must be the priority of all, and demands to leave behind political differences that harm everyone.

The reality is that the drought does not understand political acronyms and is affecting very seriously those who maintain the production of food for the pantry of much of the world.

The consequences of not achieving a common policy in this regard would be very hard.

The Mayor of Lorca has stressed that it is from the municipalities where we promote and build Spain.

We must be able to channel the main problems that our citizens present to us, and in the case of water we find an issue that we consider to be State.

The structuring of a country inevitably passes through the establishment of joint lines of work.

If the most appropriate measure was a State Pact to that effect, it would have to be put on the table already in order to move forward.

What we can not consent is that the farmers of our land are condemned to a dramatic situation.

It's not fair.

Fulgencio Gil has also stated that the City Councils, thanks to our daily contact with the reality of the people, we are the administration that puts the feet on the ground to the rest, and in these moments we have to carry out this task independently of the party that is at the head of each Consistory.

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.

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

If we do not support the farmers and ranchers who with so much effort supply our pantries, we are condemning ourselves to fill it with products from outside, 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.

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.
