Ten years ago, Andalusian day laborers occupied the Somonte farm, located in the municipality of Palma del Rey (Cordoba). This was the response of the members of the Andalusian Workers’ Union (SAT) in the face of attempts by the regional government, in the hands of both the PSOE and the PP, to privatize the land.

From March 4, 2012when the first occupation took place, the workers were evicted several times, which did not stop them from continuing to voice the need for the space to be public and used to offer jobs. work for the unemployedbesides turning it into a development center educational activities.

“We demand Andalusian government a firm commitment not to sell the land and to remain open to hiring workers in a region where jobs need to be offered,” he explains to Público. Queen Oscargeneral secretary of the SAT, a few hours after recapturing the site for the twelfth time.

The proposal of the board to the “big landowner”

Also, the representative of the trade union claims that the only measure proposed by the Ministry of Agriculture of the region is the sale of land to a “large landowner”, since only he can acquire farms of this type.” more than five million euros: 4,749,481 euros for the largest plot and 336,776 euros for the smallest one.

Reyna explains that they don’t want to own the land, they just want the legal right to farm it; for this reason they ask the Andalusian government relinquish land to usufruct so that workers’ cooperatives can manage it without owning it. The farm has an approximate area of ​​387 hectares, “359 dry land and 21 with the possibility of irrigation,” says a union representative.

The SAT member states that “in seven consecutive years, we have achieved what the Board has never been able to do, which is to put the entire farm into production and sow the whole earth thanks to the solidarity of many colleagues who contribute to voluntary work.” Reyna, along with other colleagues from the union, shared a video in which she shouts: “Somonte is not for sale, he defends himself.”

The Junta of Andalusia took control of the Somontes lands in the 1980s under the constitution of the Andalusian Institute for Agrarian Reform (IARA). The function of this institution was to supervise and advise the agrarian reform policy that began in that decade.

In 2010, the regional executive power, which was in the hands of the socialists, put an end to this body, and powers were transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture itself. The following year, the Council put the farm up for auction. With the arrival of the People’s Party in the regional government, instead of giving an answer to day laborers claiming land, the process of getting rid of the legacy of the old IARA continued.
