"In the 15M the leaders said in a very arrogant way that we did not fill the squares, but that we set up a game and presented ourselves to the elections. Maybe today they regret having given us that idea … ", recalled Pablo Iglesias in Pamplona.
The general secretary of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, has participated this Wednesday in a meeting in Pamplona beside Ione Belarra, deputy of United We can in the Congress; Idoia Villanueva, candidate of the United We can the European Parliament; Mikel Buil García, candidate for the presidency of the Government of Navarre; Y Gaxan Sad Irisarri, candidate for mayor of Pamplona.
Iglesias has highlighted the achievements of the party in the last five years and has called all Navarre and Navarre to vote next May 26 to continue achieving social justice. "In these years, Podemos has contributed to improving democracy and now comes the second part of the film; we have managed to change many things without governing, now it's time to change many things governing in Navarre and Spain. "
Coinciding with the eighth 15M anniversary, Iglesias has started his speech reflecting on everything that has changed in our country since May 15, 2011, "that movement that changed Spain," he recalled. "The leaders said in a very arrogant way that we did not fill the squares, but we set up a game and we went to the elections. Maybe today they regret having given us that idea … "
"And Podemos was born", has recalled churches, "And since then the word plurinational is heard throughout the country and is synonymous with fraternity, and us we love to say that we defend self-government in Iruña, Bilbo and Madrid. Since the birth of Podemos, the bipartisanship has ended, the primaries are made in all the parties (even in the PP!), And they also changed things in the PSOE. We dared to say truths that had never been said so clearly, and we talked about plot, and we affirmed that corruption was not a problem of rotten apples but a way to organize power, a system for those who do not show up to the elections. " "Many things have changed, and today society can say that anti-systems are those that end up on the boards of directors of large companies"
"Because Podemos existed," added Iglesias, "in the municipal elections of four years ago the political change came to Madrid, Barcelona and many other cities, and thanks to the existence of Podemos, Four years ago in Navarra, a 32-year regime was ended"
"To advance in democracy is to limit the power of the great and magnify the power of the small ones. Now it's time for Podemos to be in the Government of Navarra to guarantee that Navarra is a vanguard in the fight against inequality, a European reference in social policies and that respect for self-government is guaranteed: here and in Madrid, "Iglesias has quashed.
Mikel Buil, For his part, he recalled in his speech that social justice, fight against social inequality and put women first are the priorities of Podemos for the next term. "In four years we have managed to turn the boat and now we have to navigate it. We have achieved nothing less than a vice-presidency of social rights that looks on equal terms to the economic vice-presidency, this does not exist in the entire State. In these years, the number of people assisted in a situation of dependency has doubled, the cuts in Education have been reversed, the bankruptcy of the Navarrese treasury has been avoided … ".
"We want Navarra to be an avant-garde in the State and in Europe, to be an example. For this, among other things, we must attack three inequality gaps: gender, territorial and age. This is not that we can not allow it, it is that we can correct it. We are a guarantee of change and without a strong We can not get it, that's why today I want to ask you hands and mouths to carry this message to as many more people as possible. This system is not going to change neither Pablo nor I, this system is going to change you and you, because it was possible and yes you can, "said the candidate for the presidency of Navarre.
Idoia Villanueva also called in his speech to mobilize and vote for United We Can Change Europe on Sunday May 26 to democratize the European Union and put at once, the economy at the service of the people to "turn around this Europe that today is not we like".
"The European Union can sometimes feel very distant, but the reality is that Europe has no meaning if it is not a composition with all of us inside. Because, remember, it is in Europe where the policies that prevent spending the surplus on the public social policies that the Navarrese want are decided and that is also where the common agrarian policies so necessary for an increasingly empty Navarre are decided. In Europe, too, there is a struggle against electric oligopolies, housing vultures or the uberization of the economy. On May 26 we must go out and vote so that Europe is not a tax haven for the rich and the eternal precariousness for young people, "said Villanueva.
