The European Parliament’s Committee on Petitions has accepted a request from Fernando Casas Mínguez, a professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid, calling for the construction of the ski lifts in the Old Town of Cuenca to be halted.

The petitioner states in his letter, to which Europa Press has had access, that the public authorities of Castilla-La Mancha, “going against the rule of law and democracy, use the European Recovery and Resilience funds to adopt policies that violate the values ​​proclaimed in the Treaty of the European Union.”

The text of the petition states that, with European funds, it has been decided to carry out in the city of Cuenca, a World Heritage Site, “a ski lift project that the citizens neither asked for nor support”; and stresses that “there are other priorities for the people who live in the Old Town such as transport, security, services, parking, traffic and the use of public space, “rather than ski lifts designed primarily for tourism.”

The petition argues that “the non-transparent and undemocratic way of doing politics, using European funds as a screen, harms the rights of citizens, violates the principles proclaimed by the Treaty of the European Union and the Charter of Fundamental Rights such as the right to participation, and does not respect the dignity of citizens.”

Finally, the petition requests that everything possible be done to halt the works, “which have been started hastily, without following the established procedures, without having made the project known, or having presented a prior assessment of the possible impact on the heritage of works that they say will be financed with European funds.”

The petition can be supported by citizens, after signing on the European Parliament’s website, for discussion in the European Parliament’s Committee on Petitions.
