Chaos ratings

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Four press reports the same day ("El País", July 31, 2015) warned of the serious ethical, conceptual and political situation in which we find ourselves:

1. "Two judges next to PP will judge the Bárcenas case." How the citizenship still tolerate having “progressive” and “conservative” judges, next to a party or the other? Popular outcry. A country without "fair justice" is a country adrift.

2. "Carroñeros
" by Xavier Vidal Folch. It starts as follows: "Bravo. Madrid's Mayor, Manuela Carmena, cancelled the privatization process of 2086 (!) Social housing for rent ... They are snatched from the "vulture funds", as are called the investor hedge funds in government bonds or other assets, as housing, close to bankruptcy institutions ... Their “scavenger” operations with tangible affected and benefit tangible as well ... "(concerning, relevant former presidents of Madrid, that are mentioned).

There is another reason for a great public outcry. I remember the negative comments devoted to the President of Argentina because she resisted to submit to the large "vultures" of North America ... Let us raise the voice. Let us say "enough". Vulture funds, no!!!

3. "Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) concealed a report contrary to a nuclear cemetery of Cuenca". The direction of the CSN did not delivered to the five full members of this body, the "information note" from the geologists’ area of ​​the institution, which aimed at the "unfavorable characteristics" of the place chosen for the radioactive waste silo of Cuenca.

This is really news that requires immediate and thorough investigation in order to determine the very serious responsibilities, if any, may fall on those who had acted not only because of "uncertainty" but for failing to warn of potential disaster of enormous human dimension. I am sure everything will be clarified and will proceed scientifically, without accepting any kind of pressure. These and other cases are what the people are now urgently claiming: clarity, knowing exactly the situation and the consequences that could result if timely corrective action is not taken.

4. "Refugee Stories" by Monika Zgustova. "When Europeans fleeing barbarism, in most cases they found a country which sheltered them. Today, their descendants are highly unsupportive with the new waves of needy from the East ".... Intense public outcry in order that the EU stops being strictly a monetary union and becomes a political and economic union and implement the excellent Charter of Fundamental Rights (2000) and is governed by democratic principles. Today it is subject to markets, with a rigorous practice of neoliberalism. We want that EU helps development, to be supportive, to be an example of democracy.

Popular outcry.
