EU vote to freeze Spains Funding

Postby Bongtrees » Mon Mar 23, 2009 1:34 pm

The European Parliament is to vote on Thursday as to whether to freeze funding to Spain as a result of land abuses that have been denounced in Brussels by various EU citizens.

The motion has been elaborated by Margrete Auken from Denmark, and demands that all payments to Spain be suspended unless all new urbanizing plans are revised and those that do not guarantee property rights, do not respect the environment and do not adhere to EU laws are cancelled.

The initiative already has the opposition of the Spanish Socialist and Partido Popular MPs in the Parliament
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. George Orwell
