Spain: Next actions in October: No to the Debt State Budgets 2013

Draft-document that rejects the State Budget 2013

Not to the budgets

On 29th September was presented to Parliament the draft State Budget for 2013. Presumably, after regular processing a mock debate in Congress, will be approved by the plenary in mid-November without substantial changes.

These budgets have been prepared without taking into account the material conditions in which the population is, delving into the line of higher taxes and deep cuts in health, education, dependency, research, etc. The last modified Article 135 of the Constitution, without popular consultation mortgaged our sovereignty to markets and prefaced the payment of a debt that there was no been generated by the population at the expense of our rights. The purpose of the budgets for the coming year is to expropriate resources that belong to pay the enormous debt than others, because of their private interests, they have collapsed.

The institutional system in which we are immersed obvious, if not prevent, participation in decisions that affect the whole population and limited to elections following which the parties not complying with their programs. Who should be our political representatives and act on popular demand to address our real needs follow the dictates of external agencies, outside the popular sovereignty.

The draft budget for 2013 endorses the irrationalities and injustices in the organization of public resources, reaffirming that we will be the vast majority of people who will pay the debt. A debt that, in large part, is private and has been transformed in public through bailouts to banks, and therefore, it is illegitimate. It is essential to implement an audit that publicly clarify how much its owe, why its owe, and who owe and therefore who should pay.

The spiral of austerity, cuts and debt in which we entered in 2009 in all the countries of southern Europe is not serving to improve the situation. The draft budget for 2013 continues in the same line, it endorses the irrationalities and injustices in the organization of public resources and charges in the population the payment of the debt clearly unpayable by further cuts in social rights (as the most probably cuts in the pension system).

The consequences of these budgets are beyond the term for which they are approved. Cut in social progress achieved for decades affect several generations. Therefore, we propose that the project must be returned.

Summary of the order that filed the case against 8 promoters of the #25s in Madrid

1 – “In no way this court agreed to accept or reject any competence: the police is the one who has to put detainees in the appropriate court.”

2 – “No alteration happened in the normal operation during the session of the Congress on 25 September. Moreover, a deputy, in turn of fixing positions, said that ‘Congress has been able to maintain its activity quite normally.”

3 – “With the information given above, as noted in the first of these legal arguments it can not be seen that the defendants, nor others who were identified in these proceedings in its initial phase, have committed the crime against the state institutions.”

4 – “No way, the police unit can ‘steal’ specific facts attributed to specific individuals who are known by a court in order to make another court be aware of them, it is clearly an excess in the functions of the judicial police.”
