Penalva: "The reform of local councils against the interests of the neighbors' (06/11/2013)

Municipal spokesman IU-Green stresses that removes powers and funding to municipalities, causing cuts and privatization on municipal services that hurt, as always, to those most in need.

The spokesman for IU-Greens in the city of Cieza, Antonio Penalva, showed the opposition of your organization Streamlining Act and Sustainability of Local Government, that the PP wants to get ahead "against the opinion of all social movements, neighborhood and other parliamentary political parties ".

For IU-Greens, this reform endangers basic services such as care for the elderly and dependent persons municipal nursery schools, the maintenance of schools, public employment, the Centers for Women; municipal housing development; and water bills or waste, "which will be even more expensive," they say.

Penalva, described the new law as "historic and radical shift in local democracy, as it nullifies the participation of residents and leaves in the background to the single administration close to the neighbors."

It also noted that "the criterion of this law is basically economist and has no principle and welfare of the residents and the provision of services".

"We want the municipalities are driving forces in the economic life of the people," municipal spokesman continued IU-Green, who has been called "pathetic" the mode of action of PP, "you want to make this cut the death of the democratic councils ".

In this sense, he lamented that the State Budget (PGE) contemplate a cut 7.129 million "to eliminate basic services and social character of the municipalities", while they will be transformed 36.729 million to pay debt interest , "money you will pay to the bank without any consideration or social benefit."

In this situation, from IU-Greens "also have an ethical and political, which is to talk about what is not spoken, it is the need to address the debate of income", because, he asserted, "this State, to keep schools, health centers, hospitals, promote social housing, building bridges or roads, must have income, and to have incomes that are more rich have to pay more. "

"Enough of us workers of this country that we sustain with our contributions, mainly through income tax or consumption tax, enough of that absorption of revenues and we'll bet a real tax reform to make the rich pay once they have to pay to allow state revenues that can maintain services, "he added.

Finally, recalled that municipalities "are critical to the state government", and called for the participation "in this battle" in his defense, while called for "unity of all municipalities to defend public interests from neighbors ".
