Ferrovial’s decision to change its headquarters to the Netherlands has lifted the majority of ministers of the coalition government en bloc. On this occasion, it has been the turn of the leader of Podemos and Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, who has raised her tone even more than her colleagues and has branded Rafael del Pino’s firm a “pirate company” for its transfer and has asked “to tie them short” so that “they have to return every last euro that the Spaniards gave them.”
This was what Belarra said in her speech at the feminist route meeting ‘The force that transforms’ of Podemos in Madrid, where she claimed that feminism “proposes a change of perspective” to “move from the logic of capitalism, from the permanent accumulation of economic benefits” to the defense of the “rights of the social majority”.
In this context, he said that this week a “very concrete example” has been seen with what happened to Ferrovial, which has been affected by its transfer when “it has only taken 1,000 million euros of public contracts in this legislature.”
Likewise, he recalled that the company “saw how their salaries were nationalized with the ERTE and that later, when things went wrong, it was rescued with money from all Spaniards.” Now, he has regretted, “deciding to take his headquarters outside of Spain.”
“It is a pirate company and it must be said clearly,” he insisted in this regard, to ask that the contributions made by the Spaniards be returned so that they can be used for public services. “That is exposing the logic of life ahead of the logic of economic benefits. And that is also feminism,” she has sentenced.
