24 social groups Ecologists in Action to support the complaint of the mayor of Valladolid
In the complaint made by the Mayor of Valladolid against spokesperson Ecologists in Action by public statements in which they criticized the repeated breaches of the law by the Mayor of Valladolid, ecologists have collected twenty judgments unfavorable for Valladolid City Council on matters of general or municipal organization, showing that the practice of making decisions independently of the administrative requirements and procedures outlined in the legislation is customary in the conduct of the municipal authority.
Among the municipal
canceled or suspended by court decisions of the Courts of Valladolid, the Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Castilla y León and the Supreme Court are issues like the destruction of the Gardens of The Blonde, the construction of the parking of the Plaza de España and Zorrilla, retraining the Building Duke of Lerma, the legalization of casting ingots Special Authorization phone antennas, the partial annulment of the municipal budgets for 2003, changing irregular Catalog posts City Council's work, expulsion from social organizations of the Boards of Directors of ASVA and AUVASA and various modifications of the General Urban Plan on phone antennas and parking, among others.
In most cases, court decisions have come when the illegalities revealed years ago that had been perpetrated, it is impossible or very difficult to repair the damage. In this way, local authorities deliberately exploit the slowness of the courts to impose through a fait accompli policy decisions outside the legal framework. The effect on citizens and institutions is devastating, to establish the "anything goes" as a pattern of public behavior. It is this reality that environmentalists criticize, in which the role of the Mayor of Valladolid is manifest.
In this context, the lawsuit brought by the municipal responsible due to a new attempt to divert attention to their particular way of understanding the law, seeking a way to silencing of a civic organization that apparently it is particularly uncomfortable in his criticism actions of municipal and environmental planning. The public statement is the subject of a complaint just an excuse to do what the mayor and tried, unsuccessfully, and a half years ago in his previous threats of termination, at that time was a simple request notarized. For Ecologists in Action, the best response to intimidation City continue to insist that it is infringing the public authority, denouncing his abuses andalusia permanent right of everyone to a city and a better environment.
