To celebrate the October 17th International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, along will be held this week multiple actions throughout the Spanish State that you can see here.
October 17 is World Day for the Eradication of Poverty. This year with more reasons than ever to Spanish Alliance against Poverty and Social Summit manifest rejection of the policy of cuts that excuse compliance with the deficit, increasingly impoverished population within and outside our country.
The progressive weakening of social policies as education, equality, education, cooperation, dependence, culture ... - is dismantling the welfare state and expelling extreme poverty and exclusion of millions of people. For cooperation policy, the Budget for 2014 put the percentage for this policy in the 0.17% of GNI - comparable to levels almost 30 years ago.
Given this reality, we believe that instead of "recovery budgets" as the called the government- should talk about the "poverty budgets."
There are alternatives: cut fraud and no rights
The government argues that cuts in social policies, policies of gender equality in political cooperation, the austerity imposed on our economic, social and cultural rights that are leaving the poverty line and thousands of citizens citizens, are supposed to no money to meet EU requirements to put a limit to our fiscal deficit. However, according to experts in the Treasury, the Spanish state loses 90,000 million per year due to tax evasion, made by 72% for large companies and fortunes. The Observatory on Corporate Social Responsibility says that 33 of the 35 companies that make up the Dow 35 have funds in tax havens.
