Andrés Pedreño, regional deputy, has asked the General Directorate of Mining to allocate money to this Institute due to the "seriousness" of the contamination data that have resulted from the investigation of Dr. José Matías Peñas.
The amount demanded by Podemos, quantified in three million euros, is included in the 2018 budgets for mining planning.
Pedreño explained that the pollution figures in the Institute warn that they are "far outpacing" the normal values â€‹â€‹in zinc, arsenic and lead, metals found in the soil of Sierra Minera IES.
"As we said the problem is not limited to the school of Llano, other schools are at risk, as we just learned with the Sierra Minera IES, because it is the entire Sierra Minera that has an urgent public health problem."
Therefore, the regional deputy of Podemos asks the government to "assume responsibility" since "they have washed their hands when it comes to demanding that the environmental restoration be carried out by the company Portman Golf to which nothing has been demanded The inhabitants of the Sierra Minera La Union, as well as teachers and students, are totally unprotected from the pollution they suffer in their daily lives.
Andrés Pedreño recalled that both Popular Party and Citizens have rejected an amendment of Podemos "for the creation of a Technical Office of the Sierra Minera so that in coordination with the other councils involved, it can intervene in a possible situation of risk for the public health caused by the activity and the abandonment of mining operations ".
