"One more sign that justice is on the side of the powerful, a bank that profits at the expense of the people and was rescued by the Popular Party with more than 60,000 million euros of public money that we will never recover"
The full past of October and before the uncertainty that was hovering on this issue, Ganar Totana raised an Urgent Motion for "the City Council to show its rejection of the unprecedented and shameful decision of the Supreme Court to set aside its own Sentence 1505/2018 on the passive subject of the Tax on Documented Legal Acts "that affects thousands of families totaneras and millions of citizens / as in the Spanish State.
We also argued the need for a public bank in Spain to serve the general interests that incentivize the economic sector, support local corporations and be a counterweight to the current banking system based on practices that border on usury.
Across Europe, the weight of Public Banking is very strong and in Germany, for example, accounts for 24% of the total.
Yesterday, we attended with sadness at the time when the ruling of the Supreme Court was issued, in which it is ruled that customers pay the tax on mortgages, a tax that is not even contemplated in other European countries.
In this way the high court corrects the section that innovated the doctrine and returns to previous jurisprudence, favorable to banking entities.
From Win Totana and also from the federal leadership of Izquierda Unida, we denounce the injustice committed with this ruling in which once again the most powerful are favored, a bank that was rescued by the Popular Party with more than 60,000 million euros from public money out of the taxes of the Spanish.
60,000 million that have been left to invest in health, education and other basic public services and that is clearly not going to recover.
"We consider it a priority to defend the interests of humble families in the face of the powerful who influence and command a Bank that is so necessary to update, applying the Constitution, as the Archaic Judiciary with serious Francoist remnants, in need of democratic and social values. Constitution, ventilate its structures. "
