According to Councilman IU-LV in the Municipality of Cieza, José Eduardo Illueca, "or we get the batteries to give battle, or the river we know today will be but a memory in a few years"

Rather than have been alarmed UI council members to verify that the Annex of real investment of the State Budget of 2011 is included, with the title of "water supply system from the reservoir of the Commonwealth Cenajo Taibilla Channels (MCT), the project aimed to build a pipeline to water flows, the transfer from the Tagus, currently circulating the banks of the Segura, ie, which since 2007 has come to be known, so popular somewhat inappropriate, as the "tubing the river."

The Government does not abandon the project, but insists on the same

In the words of José Eduardo Illueca, councilor of the political group's representative in the Platform for the Defence of the River Segura, "this finding confirms our worst fears: the Zapatero government is not abandoning the project of diverting the flow Segura, but insists on it, thus denying the information came from some gossip circulating that the current crisis would determine that this project fell into oblivion. "

Specifically, as explained by this council, "the Annex referred involves a total investment of 282,000,000 euros: 8,460,000 euros are allocated to the current financial year, expected to pay for projects, and the remaining amount is broken down into a four-year Plan Investment, which plans to spend EUR 67,680,000 in each of the next three years (2011, 2012 and 2013) and 68,354,000 euros in 2014. "

In addition, Illueca recalls, "and were awarded in 2007, in the form of construction and project, eight of the eleven sections into which the basic project, was awarded then some of the stronger construction companies in the country, such as FCC, among others, and, moreover, the Council of Ministers approved in the summer of 2009, the public utility for alleged health reasons, the Project in order to obviate the adverse environmental impact reports. "

If we mobilize, the river we know today will soon be no more than a memory

Therefore, the budget for the next four years is the last link in the processing necessary for that work can begin immediately materially.

According Illueca, "the inaction against environmental aggression of these dimensions is the worst of the recipes, because the facts make it increasingly difficult to halt this project somehow, we could say we're in the moment of now or never: do we put the batteries and are able to stop, mobilization and protest, this draft tubing or river we know today will be but a memory in a few years. "

The economic, social and environmental aspects of the project have been aired on previous occasions, "and we're not talking about no joke, a loss of pressure might be on time up to 40 100 of which currently carries the river would entail dramatic consequences for river ecosystem, the impact on riparian vegetation, fish diversity, the birds and such iconic species as the otter would be very hard, not to mention the aesthetic and cultural impact on a people whose life has been historically and remains deeply linked to the Segura River, we must not allow this attack, at least, not without a struggle, "says Illueca.

Izquierda Unida prompted the removal of this investment in parliament

"

Moreover, "we will also request an immediate meeting of the Platform in Defence of the River Segura, truth be told, has not been too active in recent months, but we consider it essential to maintain the unity of society and ciezana coastal towns in this area, although, given the imminence of the problem, it is also necessary to act in the political, where the final decisions are made, "concludes Illueca.
