More than 10,000 march in Pamplona for public services

More than 10,000 people demonstrated today in the Navarrese (and historical Basque) capital of Iruñea-Pamplona against the massive plundering of the res publica by the ruling party the, conservative and Spanish Nationalist, Navarrese People's Union (UPN), sustained (actively in the past, passively now) by the, also Spanish Nationalist, Socialist Party (PSN-PSOE).

Two key issues are arising the very legitimate anger of the Navarrese: on one side the institutional robbery of the local savings bank (CAN), which was sold for peanuts to Spanish and the Catalan interests, on the other the privatization in very bad conditions of fundamental services like hospital kitchens, which are offering the worst possible catering short of poison (sugar for diabetics, brown omelets, tiny rations...)

In addition to these there are other also important matters like the robbery by the Catholic Church of many municipal buildings and lands (just by claiming them, they get them assigned by law) or the pocketing of large sums of extra income by political leaders in farcical meetings where they did nothing and which were counted several times.

Also the cuts to social assistance is leaving many unemployed or otherwise marginalized Navarrese deprived of any income.
