Rights of the Children/Derechos de los Niños, desprotegidos en España

leave a comment »

1 de cada 3 niños y niñas viven bajo el umbral de la pobreza en nuestro país, alrededor de 2,5 millones de seres humanos que viven en el estado español. Y eso es conocido y denunciado por las Naciones Unidas, que reconviene al estado español por sus deficiencias, a la cola de los paises supuestamente desarrollados, por detrás de Bulgaria o Rumania.

Éste és el texto original en inglés, publicado a principios de febrero:

Committee on the Rights of the Child. Concluding observations on the combined fifth and sixth periodic reports of Spain

A brief with the recommendations:

General measures of implementation (arts. 4, 42 and 44 (6)

Legislation 5. The Committee reiterates its previous recommendations that the State party ensure that legislation and administrative regulations in all Autonomous Communities conform fully to the principles and provisions of the Convention and its Optional Protocols (CRC/C/ESP/CO/3-4, para. 10). It also recommends that the State party ensure the alignment of regional legislation with the national legal frameworks related to children’s rights, ensuring their homogeneous implementation and adequate and sufficient human, technical and financial resources.

Comprehensive policy and strategy 6. Noting the final evaluation of the Second National Strategic Plan for Children and Adolescents 2013–2016, the Committee recommends that the State party: (a) Expedite the development of a comprehensive policy and a harmonized strategy for the full implementation of the Convention; (b) Ensure that such policy and strategy are child rights-based and become an integral component of national and regional development planning, encompassing the different regional contexts; (c) Include specific time-bound and measurable goals and targets in the harmonized strategy to monitor progress in the enjoyment of all rights by all children and link it to national, regional and municipal strategies and budgets to ensure the appropriate allocation of financial, human and technical resources for its implementation.

Coordination 7. While noting the role of the three existing mechanisms to promote coordination in the implementation of sectoral policies, at the interministerial, autonomous communities, and technical working levels, the Committee recommends that the State party ensure the necessary human, technical and financial resources for their effective operation. It reiterates its recommendation that the State party continue strengthening its coordination systems within the central administration and between the Autonomous Communities in the implementation of policies for the promotion and protection of the rights of the child (CRC/C/ESP/CO/3-4, para. 12).

Allocation of resources 8. The Committee is seriously concerned that the level of investment in children by the State party has been inadequate to offset the negative impact of the severe economic and CRC/C/ESP/CO/5-6 3 social crisis that began in 2008 and that has led to increased poverty and social inequality. It is concerned about: (a) The negative impact of cuts in public investment on the implementation of the Convention, particularly for children in disadvantaged or marginalized situations, including children from low-income families and Roma children, mainly in the areas of education, health, housing and social protection; (b) The absence of consistent budgetary analysis at the national level and in various regions or autonomous communities for the correct identification, tracking and protection of resources for the implementation of children’s rights; (c) The fact that Act 26/2015 explicitly stipulates that the measures included in the Act cannot entail an increase in resources.

El gobierno del estado, con varios años en el poder, está fallando a nuestros niños. Y no lo decimos nosotros que hace tiempo que lo notamos y lo anotamos, lo dice el Comité de Derechos Humanos de las Naciones Unidas. No se le pone remedio ni, por lo que parece, tienen intenciones de hacerlo, mientras dilapidan recursos en inexplicables inversiones que sólo benefician a unos pocos que, por cierto, no lo necesitan.

Los que nos dedicamos a la defensa de los derechos de los niños y los que trabajamos a diario en su atención mèdica, social, educativa o familiar, tenemos el deber de denunciarlo y llevarlo a la atención de la gente. Y a la de sus representantes legales o políticos que puedan estar en condiciones de reconocerlo y actuar.
