The Ecological Transition Commission of the Congress of Deputies will listen to Teresa Vicente this Tuesday, defending the Popular Legislative Initiative that seeks to give legal personality to the Mar Menor.
The defence of the ILP of the ecosystem is based, Vicente explains, on the charter of the Rights of Nature that has already had experiences in America and Oceania where rivers or lakes have been given this legal recognition to protect places of high ecological value threatened by the current model of production and consumption. This is the first experience in Europe. With this initiative, the aim is for the Mar Menor to have a charter of rights that respects its ecological law and guarantees its legitimate rights to live, to repair the damage and to recover. Except for VOX, says Teresa Vicente, it has the support of all the parliamentary groups.
Various social and environmental groups working in defence of the Mar Menor and who have collaborated in the collection of signatures for the ILP have called a rally in front of the Congress of Deputies in support of the initiative, coinciding with Vicente’s appearance.
