IU asks the intervention of the state in Murcia's autonomy "for abandoning its powers in the protection of Cope-Calnegre" (15/04/2019)

This morning the Municipal Spokesman of IU-V, Pedro Sosa, presented before the media a press conference of his political training on the destruction of the Regional Park Cabo Cope-Calnegre in which the Regional Coordinator and candidate have participated from IU-V to the Presidency of the CARM, José Luis Alvárez-Castellanos;

the councilor of IU in the City council of Águilas, Isabel María Torrente;

and the councilor lorquina of the formation, Gloría Martín.

The Regional Coordinator of IU-V has affirmed that the public policy of protection of natural spaces on the part of the regional Government borders on the prevarication before the evident abandonment of functions that implies the fact that we have not less than 27 years of delay in the approval of Some Natural Resources Management Plans (PORNs), among which the Cope-Calnegre coastal regional park stands out.

Alvárez-Castellanos explained that the basic legislation of the State contemplates that the approval of the PORNs must be prior to the declaration of the natural spaces and that only exceptionally its subsequent approval is contemplated that, prevents the Law, should take place in the non-extendible period of one year.

That 27 years have passed, that there have been up to 5 judicial sentences against the claims of the regional government to check out that natural space and all the cumulative aggressions accumulated without response from the regional environmental authority to which the Regional Park has been and is being submitted they take us to appeal to the Government of the Nation.

The regional candidate of IU-V also stressed that the City of Lorca should amend as soon as possible its General Urban Plan and adapt it to the judgments of the courts around the natural area, to rule out once and for all the urbanization of this natural treasure distributed between the municipalities of Águilas and Lorca.

Alvárez-Castellanos has finally requested that the demands of the environmental groups be implemented in the sense of extending the figures (LIC and ZEPA) and the protection regime of the Habitat Directive to the entire regional park.

For its part, the Councilor of IU-Águilas, Isabel Torrente, has detailed the circumstances that have surrounded the latest aggression against the regional park in the aquiline municipality in the vicinity of the tower of Cope, stating that it was called by a group of neighbors of the around to be aware of the plowing with heavy machinery and that is destroying protected flora and performing on land in which a large number of black turtles is currently breeding, which is a species declared "vulnerable" in the regulations of Murcia.

Before the call, the councilor of IU went to the SEPRONA and before the punctual lack of cash of that service of the Civil Guard, called to the Local Police of Eagles that finally paralyzed an action in which they have discarded no less than 2500 meters of land full of flora and fauna endemisms.

Torrente has abounded in the lack of protection suffered by the regional park and the fact that the PP does not want to manage their powers in terms of protecting natural spaces as they tolerate and normalize all attacks and attacks on this coastal area.

Finally, the councilor of IU-V in Lorca, Gloria Martin, has gone further by noting that we attended the end of a new term lost for the management of our territory, and especially in what has to do with the natural park Cabo-Cope Calnegre.

One more, because we have been waiting for 27 years, suffering a normative legal evacuation, of which the Popular Party is fully aware, is responsible, and from which some take advantage to practice the law of the Wild West.

Illegal rots, acts of sabotage to prevent access control for motor vehicles in areas of high ecological value, destruction of the elements that protect the threatened flora ... Everything goes unpunished.

They have not even renounced their speculative greed that could deprive us forever of a virgin landscape, of its botanical rarities and its vulnerable fauna, today unprotected.

The threat persists, because not even the Cope Marine Consortium has been dissolved, which has among its objectives the "promotion, development, management and execution of the Cope Marine Regional Action," despite the fact that this is nullified by final judicial sentence.

Neither the Lorca City Council has canceled the adaptation of its General Plan of Urban Planning to accommodate a project knocked down by Justice.

On the autonomous governments of the PP also weighs the shame that the European Commission has initiated an infringement procedure on the Spanish State for the delay in the approval of the management plans of the Natura 2000 Network, including those of Cabo Cope-Calnegre.

This can result in economic sanctions and in the reduction of aid by European funds for the Region.

And despite this, his hurtful inaction continues.

The People's Party, argues the councilor of IU-V, can not continue assuming one more minute the powers in matters of legislative development and implementation on protected natural areas and environmental protection attributed to it by Article 11 of the Statute of Autonomy of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the basic legislation of the state.

And since we have been desperate for 27 years for the regional government to approve the figure of natural resource management plans, which is part of that basic legislation of the State, we believe that the time has come to request the intervention of the State.

And there are not too many ways to do it, Martín said.

One of them is Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which says that if an Autonomous Community does not comply with the obligations that the Magna Carta or other laws impose, the Government, upon request to the President of the Autonomous Community and, in the case if it is not attended to, with the approval by an absolute majority of the Senate, it may adopt the necessary measures to force the Senate to comply with those obligations or for the protection of said general interest.

The configuration that comes out of the next general elections, affirms the mayor of IU-V, will be vital to be able to claim, with success, the application of this article.

We will do it immediately after the new Cortes are constituted and we will demand that everyone be portrayed.

When there is a bankruptcy in compliance with the law by those who have the mandate to exercise, in its territorial scope, certain powers that have abdicated with a terrible irresponsibility, there are exceptional measures, although they suppose to break the principle of autonomy.

At this point, after almost three decades of insubordination on the part of the regional governments of the PP, we believe that it is the only and painful exit for the system to work as it should, Gloria Martín concluded.
