The PP will propose before the plenary session that the City Council of Totana will adhere to the celebrations for the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Tajo-Segura transfer.
The Tajo-Segura Transfer was inaugurated in 1979 and this year 2019 the infrastructure turns 40 years old.
To mark the 40th anniversary of this great infrastructure for the social and economic development especially of the agricultural sector of the East, the SCRATS (Central Union of Irrigators Tajo- Segura), has initiated a series of events to commemorate the date on which it came into operation the Transfer: "40 years of effort, innovation, union, 40 years creating work and wealth", indicate from the Union, whose slogan in social networks for this event is' WE ARE #AGUA.
WE ARE LIFE.
WE ARE #TRASVASE '.
Throughout these 40 years, this hydraulic infrastructure, which sends water to the provinces of Alicante, Murcia and Almeria, has contributed to these regions;
progress, benefits and development, because without it, this Community would not be what it is in agriculture.
On the other hand, we can not only take into account that the water transferred through the canal has been destined to agriculture but it also supplies more than 80 municipalities of this resource in their homes for human consumption.
From the SCARTS an extensive program of events and performances has been scheduled in order to celebrate this anniversary and will be held during this year, among which we can highlight;
Placing banners in the municipalities that are supplied with water through the channel of transfer, photo contest, forums with the communities of irrigators and a long program, in order to assess the importance for these autonomous communities has this infrastructure.
From the PP we consider of vital importance any action to celebrate, vindicate and defend this transfer before any adversity, since it has been one of the engines of economic and social development of our Community and our people, since Totana is an eminently agricultural municipality, and the Tajo-Segura Transfer has been vital for our agriculture and the entire southeast of Spain, so we must treat this issue with the seriousness, rigor and responsibility it deserves.
The PP totanero ask the plenary that the City of Totana adhere to the celebrations carried out by the SCRATS in commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the Transfer, as well as proceed to place the banner commemorating this anniversary on the balcony of the City Totana, as well is being done in other municipalities bathed by the transfer.
Another of the motions that we will defend during the celebration of the plenary session will be the one related to combating the illegal occupation of homes.
The Popular Party has announced the presentation in the Congress of Deputies of a Proposed Organic Law aimed at combating the illegal occupation of housing that guarantees the right to property, the safety of people and property and social coexistence.
In its article it is established, among other measures, that the Police can evict illegally occupied housing in an express period of 24 hours, without having to wait several months as hitherto and reinforces the crime of usurpation from a fine to deprivation of freedom from one to three years.
Combat the alarming and growing problem of the occupation of houses, fight against the mafias and the delinquency associated to the same one and guarantee like this, the private property, the coexistence and the security are the main reasons that impel this normative initiative in the Congress of the Deputies
From the PP of Totana propose to the plenary that the City of Totana expresses its strong support for the Proposed Organic Law against illegal occupation and for neighborhood coexistence and protection of the safety of people and things in the communities of owners, registered in the Congress of Deputies on January 31.
In addition, that the City Council demand political forces with parliamentary representation to give their approval to this antiokupa regulatory initiative, a pioneer in Spain, because it is of general interest because of these illegal activities contrary to the right to property and the safety of people and the things.
