After recording his signature in the collection of signatures carried out in Santiago de La Ribera, the socialist spokesperson, Laura Gil, has demanded that "the mayor and his group cannot remain outside the citizen petition that would allow them to exercise protection rights over the lagoon salty.
" The councilor and general secretary of the PSOE of San Javier, Laura Gil, signed yesterday, together with other socialist councilors of the municipality, in favor of the Popular Legislative Initiative that aims to give legal personality to the Mar Menor lagoon and its basin . The socialist leader recalled that "from the Socialist Party we proposed in the municipal plenary session that the City Council support this neighborhood proposal, something that was approved despite the fact that the Popular Party did not want to support it and abstained from voting." For this reason, Laura Gil asks "José Miguel Luengo not to put himself in profile in this petition to defend the main environmental and tourist attraction of our municipality." In addition, he added that "since the PP put obstacles in the Regional Assembly so that this initiative could be approved, the mayor and all his councilors should sign to encourage citizens to support this petition that requires the collection of 500,000 signatures." Gil explained that "the professor of Philosophy of Law Teresa Vicente and her team have worked on this proposal of law that seeks that the Mar Menor has its own legal personality.
In this way, anyone could exercise the rights of protection and carry out a defense real". The agony of the Mar Menor leads us to economic, physical, environmental and psychological misery The general secretary of the San Javier Socialists recalls that "the lagoon ecosystem is on the verge of collapse after decades of neglect, exploitation and neglect." He stressed that "by giving it its own legal personality, it distances itself and isolates itself from political ups and downs and spurious business interests." Gil stresses that "the riverside towns like ours, San Javier, are the most directly affected by this degradation and we have to fight tooth and nail for their survival, which is ours." "We must force new ways to have different results and this bill is a hope, and all the riverside peoples and political formations of the Region must support it until the end, since it can make the Mar Menor make history by being one of the the referents in this new way of understanding the world, where man is no longer the one who dominates nature, but is one more within it ", said the mayor, who concluded by emphasizing that" the agony of the Mar Menor leads us to an economic, physical, environmental and psychological misery of living in an environment that is ending ".
