Thus, González Soriano stressed that “we have shown that we know how to fight tenaciously and consistently for what we believe in and think about. It is this same spirit that we want to bring to the Huelva City Council, because we are sure that the city council must be the first active force to transform our society and turn it into a democratic community of rights, based on social justice”.

Thus, it is about “a community with the right to participate, with its municipal district boards; a community with guaranteed social rights (with the municipal basic income); a community with the right to enjoy its full natural heritage and archaeological heritage; a community with the right to culture and the formation of its youth; a community with the right to democratic memory, without fascist symbols on its streets; a community with feminist rights, free of violence against women and free of hateful or exclusionary speech. And on the basis of social justice that involves perfectly clean and equipped neighborhoods to promote decent living conditions equally for all the neighbors”.
