The new Government of Catalonia to bring to justice the Generalitat

The latest developments on Water Ter Llobregat which has given us the government we get from the Government speechless. We have passed that we described at the time of Banana Autonomy  in the last term of government to a kind of tambourine that is able to carry himself through the Ministry of the Presidency, the Government in the courts, in an unusual maneuver and disturbing, very disturbing.

During Autonomy in disbelief as we saw Banana autoanomena't "Government" best dance to markets and multinationals, so if last   October 17  had to award the tender Water Ter Llobregat ( ATLL) in a hurry, the  October 26  presidential revealing the Ministry of Planning and Sustainability and delayed the process alleging that required a complete analysis of the two bids submitted by ACCIONA AGBAR and, finally, the  sixth November , ACCIONA awarded the grant; ridiculous.

Nor should we forget that the Administrative Resources Contractual Authority of Catalonia (OARCC) already suspended the award for actions on  November 30 , but still within a few hours the suspension lifted. It was clear then that either markets or are the interests of the multinationals that govern the water, but not sure who did it is the government of Catalonia.

Change of Director of Planning and Sustainability expected, as it was the submission of the Government of Catalonia to private interests. What is not expected is that the situation could deteriorate further, today  January 4,  we know that the Government will take the Government to court, proving that not only we sell the structures of state as it was ATLL now to get in between that State itself. Honestly ... how sovereign right to decide and tell us? If we continue like this then no claim or state to govern.

Given these facts we see with concern the role of the majority of political forces that shape the Parliament of Catalonia. We met the first opposition party is silent and awards. And now a socialist party that talks about the defense of public services but the Barcelona metropolitan area have agreed to  the privatization of water and sanitation  following a further unfair and opaque privatization of ATLL for true also supported by PP and ERC. Let us not get dizzy with puns, ambiguities or toast to the sun, because they have really are the facts and consistency: no excuse, not just those who are responsible but also those who are able to avoid it, leave do.

Facing a Government that improvises, acts of negligence and avoids his duties as protecting the pubic water services, the guarantee of fundamental rights of citizens ask the Parliament of Catalonia to stop this sad spectacle and recover sanity:

to keep permanently Water Ter - Llobregat public company since water is essential to life and that there is no technical reason or for any economic, social or environmental far to pursue its privatization;
do not let a good essential as water becomes a tax tax collection that serves to pay interest on bank and dry waste of public administration, and
that, ultimately, the Government abandons its submission to markets and private interests for the good of the people have chosen.
Otherwise Catalan society who will have to restore the functions to be delegated to some politicians who shun. Will the people who need to manage water services in a direct, transparent and participatory, to ensure that the general interest of the public.

The  Platform Water is Life  and entities that comprise continue our work towards a public water management, transparent and participatory and the good ecological status of water bodies of Catalonia. Our business aims to be proactive and dialogue. Provide all that we know about water. However, we will use all legal and administrative remedies available to us when we see objectively that violate the principles of environmental justice and / or social and work on building a social movement with solid arguments get back peacefully by law and common sense we should.


Water Ter Llobregat neither shares nor of Agbar Water Ter Llobregat PUBLIC!
