Castejón: "We will not allow blackmail of any political party with our farmers" (28/08/2018)

The mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón, announced this morning that the local government is not going to allow blackmail of any political party with the farmers of our region, after Vicente Carión has announced that they will request the Popular Party to remove the amendment with which you want to amend Law 1/2018 on urgent measures to guarantee environmental sustainability in the Mar Menor environment.

This has been explained by the mayor after the meeting held on Tuesday, August 28 with representatives of the agricultural sector of the Region of Murcia as the president of the Coordinator of Organizations of Farmers and Cattle Ranchers of Murcia, Miguel Padilla;

the president of COAG Cartagena, Vicente Carrión;

and the president of the Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives of Murcia, Santiago Martínez.

Vicente Carrión has indicated that during this meeting they have transferred to the mayor the priorities of the agricultural sector at the time of developing its activity, emphasizing two issues: the water deficit and the impossibility of complying with three articles of Law 1/2018 approved in the Regional Assembly and for which the Popular Party has submitted an amendment with which, as noted Carrión, the sector does not agree.

Carrión has asked, therefore, that the Popular Party withdraw this amendment and present a new proposal agreed by all political groups and in which the articles of impossible application are modified.

The mayor recalled that there is already legislation in force that, if the consensus of the agricultural sector does not exist, will have to be modified under the maximum possible consensus and not by the imperative of a single political group.

On the other hand, Ana Belén Castejón has agreed to request an interview with the new president of the Segura Hydrographic Confederation, to raise the requests of the farmers.

Carrión explained that some of the requests that the mayor will take before the new president of the CHS are the authorization of the 178 drought wells that passed the environmental impact assessment last year in order to minimize the impact of the drought period.

Finally, Carrión has asked the CHS to continue with the project that has been launched with the UPCT on the farm of Tomás Ferro to denitrify the groundwater, while requesting that they be allowed to store the rejection of the dislocation in waterproofed rafts while the salmoreduct is enabled.
