"He has come to take the picture. Or is it that we're going to say anything else?" In the fish lonja of San Pedro del Pinatar, who come out daily at Fan in the Minor Sea did not expect much of the visit of Teresa Ribera, minister for the ecological transition and third government vice president. Who are seeing with their own eyes how the greatest salt lagoon in Europe is becoming a cloaca - and of invasive species like the blue crab and if that we speak another day - are fed up with the inaction of the administrations and eager to change the question Who is guilty? By How do we solve the problem?
Ribera arrived with a few minutes late on the schedule foreseen to the Town Hall of Los Alcázares, where a citizen with a t-shirt-denunciation about the situation of the Murciana Albufera received it to the cry of 'Nice sea there is no region' and 'Mar Live Mar , discharged zero '. The minister approached dialogue with him and confessed "understanding the frustration" and "the anguish" of citizenship. "Please, put everyone to work," the activist was given a ribera before she entered the consistory. She before she had time to receive a postcard from the town of another citizen.
Ribera had begun his day early in the morning, meeting with representatives of the Southeast Naturalist Association (ANSE) and then maintained a meeting with members of the SOS Mar Menor platform. Subsequently she was received by the mayor of Los Alcázares and the first Ediles of La Union, San Javier, Torre Pacheco, Murcia, Cartagena, San Pedro del Pinatar, Alamo Fountain, Alhama de Murcia and Mazarrón.
Teresa Ribera pointed out that the important thing in the problem suffered by the smaller sea is "working properly respecting the law" and has announced that they will be vigilant to be fulfilled and dialogens with the institutions and civil society.
He has also warned that it is not a matter against agriculture, but on the contrary, it is a defense towards most farmers, because they are a few who have breached the law.
He has also announced that next week he will maintain a meeting with agrarian organizations to see what they can contribute to solve the problem generated in the salt lagoon.
Leandro Sánchez, president of the Association of Neighbors of Cartagena and Comarca, was expressed in these terms on the Ribera visit in statements to the 'chain to be'. "This is a matter of state and it is no longer worth looking for another side, as it happened with the 'Prestige', you should put all the meat on the spine so that once you can reverse this situation"
"There is no longer time to lose," Sánchez added urgently. "The citizens want those who represent us leave partisan wars and get to work. Will come the day when someone will ask for criminal responsibilities for those who have allowed this atrocity"Updated Date: 25 August 2021, 08:53
