The candidate number 2 to the Congress for United We, Esther Herguedas, has participated this afternoon with Antonio Urbina, regional deputy and also a member of the candidacy, in Moratalla, in which both have analyzed the causes of the growing rural depopulation and contributed the solutions that are included in the training program.
Herguedas, the first has pointed out as the main causes of the phenomenon of "Spain emptied" in "the lack of investment by public entities, and the lack of an economic model that allows people to survive in these areas."
Thus, the candidate has opted to develop "an economy that goes through traditional and family agriculture, compared to an agribusiness model that is not compatible with territorial development or human development."
For his part, Antonio Urbina has pointed out that, in the face of depopulation, "what stays mainly are older people, whose main concern is pensions."
The regional deputy has stressed that "the commitment of United We can enforce by law to be revalued by the IPC, and also advance the horizon of the legislature towards a minimum pension of 1,080 euros."
Urbina has also demanded that "the education service, the health service, the social services or the care for dependency" be guaranteed in small towns, "regardless of their size or the distance to which they are from main cores ".
The former deputy has also demanded "access to the reference Hospitals for a maximum of 20 minutes, since that is what is guaranteed in most of the regulation and is not being fulfilled in many rural areas."
