CALL FOR RESPONSIBILITY
The delegate of the Government in the Region, José Vélez, has appealed to the responsibility of all so that the right of demonstration of farmers is developed “with exemplary and normality” and the image of the Region of Murcia “is not compromised again, as has happened in recent episodes”.
The tractors, as agreed at a meeting in which, in addition to Vélez, were present representatives of UPA, COAG, ASAJA, National Police, Traffic Grouping of the Civil Guard, Local Police of Murcia and Provincial Traffic Headquarters, will always circulate on interurban roads.
In addition, already inside the city, the National Police will reinforce the device with aerial means and agents of the Prevention and Reaction Unit (UPR), Police Intervention Unit (UIP), the Operational Response Group (GOR), in order to ensure both public safety and the right to demonstrate of the organizers.
