The deputy assures that the declaration of the aquifer of the Cartagena field as a body of water in chemical risk and the precautionary measures adopted to protect it, "give the reason to Podemos and suppose an authentic slap in the face of the nitrate pact of popular and socialists"The spokeswoman for Podemos in the Regional Assembly, María Marín, has described as "a real slap in the face of the nitrate pact" the measures announced yesterday by the Segura Hydrographic Confederation and the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
Marín has assured that the declaration of the Campo de Cartagena aquifer as a body of water at chemical risk and the measures to protect it "reveal the uselessness of the Comprehensive Law for the Protection of the Mar Menor and its attempt to launder the polluting practices of agro-industry " In fact, the measures adopted by the CHS coincide with the amendments proposed by Podemos in the processing of this law, such as the total restriction of the use of nitrates in the 1,500 meter protection strip, with the only exception of a 6-month transition for woody crops.The Podemos spokesperson has pointed out that under the label of precision sustainable agriculture, a definition that "does not correspond to any national or international regulation", they have sought "to legalize the dumping of thousands of tons of nitrates into the Mar Menor by big agribusiness companies.
" Marín has denounced that "after years seeing how the Mar Menor dies, this is not the time for inventions."after years seeing how the Mar Menor dies, this is not the time for inventions ".after years seeing how the Mar Menor dies, this is not the time for inventions ".In addition, the spokeswoman for Podemos has regretted that the "irresponsible collusion of the Government of López Miras, now relying on Diego Conesa, with agribusiness is going to suppose a very serious legal insecurity", since with the agreement reached "they introduce measures that contradict the norms precautionary measures approved by the CHS and required by the Ministry.
" The Comprehensive Protection Law "is therefore born dead, it does not protect the Mar Menor and its processing has only served to expose those responsible for the situation in the lagoon: an irresponsible agribusiness and political leaders at its service." From Podemos they describe as "completely incomprehensible" the change of position of the PSRM, which "has gone from announcing censorship motions to hype and cymbal" to "to sign behind closed doors and in the middle of summer an agreement with which he betrays the neighbors of the area.
"For Marín, this shows that the PSOE" only talks about the Mar Menor when they think they are going to give them votes, but then they end up approving a tailored suit for harmful practices in agribusiness.
"Despite the fact that for Podemos this declaration of the aquifer as a body of water at risk from excess nitrates "comes late", from the formation they celebrate the beginning to recognize "the serious problems caused by agribusiness and predatory practices for both the environment as for traditional agriculture.
" Marín has asked the Ministry and the hydrographic authorities to "not stay there and continue taking steps to put in place the necessary measures to solve these problems." The Podemos parliamentary spokeswoman has called on the rest of the forces to reconsider their position in order to "live up to the moment" and "help small and medium farmers in the region to adapt their farms." The deputy has insisted that from Podemos "They are not against agriculture, but against the bad practices of large corporations that have nothing to do with traditional crops in the area, "and has opted for" recovering a professionalized family agriculture, instead of an agro-industrial model based in polluting practices and unsustainable prices.
