Moratalla (Murcia), May 20 (EFE) They have met in an act of “peaceful civil disobedience”, in which abstention has been defended, against the political abandonment suffered by the people.
Thus, citizens of Galicia, La Rioja, Catalonia, Aragon, Madrid or Andalusia, among other communities, have attended this concentration to denounce the negligence of the rulers towards the Murcian town and denounce, at the same time, “the political farce and electoral” that exists in Spain, according to what the president of the aforementioned board, Rubén Gisbert, has declared to EFE.
Likewise, the act has also served for members of the delegations that this movement has distributed throughout the national territory to get to know each other and share their ideas, since its objective is to “awaken civil consciousness based on unity, dignity and disobedience” to face a system that keeps the people “prostrate, humiliated and robbed”, according to Gisbert.
The president of the board has detailed that not voting is a tool of disobedience because it “delegitimizes the system”, as did all the residents of Benizar, who refused to go to the polls in 2019 to protest evil state of its roads and its sanitary services due to the ineffectiveness of the administrations.
In this sense, he has added that the case of Benizar can be a revulsion, “because its inhabitants, from common sense, decided to mobilize unanimously and turn their backs on a political class that does not meet their needs.”
For his part, the neighbor and promoter of the act, Sergio Sánchez, recalled that “all this started with a video” in which he asked the board for help due to the abandonment suffered by Benizar, and pointed out that this Saturday has been “a sample of the ability to unite and fight against injustice.”
In addition, he has recognized that his people have earned the recognition of many people who are “very angry with the carelessness and passivity with which they are treated by the institutions”, and has warned that “there are more and more people who do not feel represented by them.”
Thus, the concentration this Saturday consisted of a march through the streets of the Murcian town with chants such as “Abstention against corruption”, “I do not vote, I support Benizar”, “You who are voting, you are also being robbed” , or “The United People will never be defeated”, among others.
Similarly, the attendees also carried several banners that read “Spain will be a democracy”, “Constituent Freedom”, “The people save the people” or “We are all Benizar, without a road I do not vote”, among other messages.
Finally, a meeting was held at the social center in which Gisbert and Sánchez participated, in which the latter expressed his gratitude to all those present for giving voice to Benizar’s problems, with tears in his eyes. EFE
