LA LINEA de la Concepcion takes another step in its plan to become autonomous

The municipal government team of La Línea de la Concepción, in the province of Cadiz, has taken another step in its aspiration for the municipality to become an autonomous community like Ceuta and Melilla, and will present the ordinary plenary session on July 8, an agreement to initiate the procedure that allows a popular consultation to take place.

The report of this proposal, which will definitely go ahead, since the party that governs the Town Hall of this Cadiz municipality, La Línea 100×100, has an absolute majority, and bases its argument on a justifying report prepared by the Town Hall of La Linea itself, on the convenience of holding this consultation and directing to the Cortes Generales and the Spanish Government the application of the constitutional mechanism – that is provided for in article 144/9 – to achieve the status of autonomy.

Brexit: End to Gibraltar land border prompts joy and trepidation -

The Spanish workers of La Línea de la Concepción are at the ready to celebrate the removal of the Gibraltar border controls. And they have reason to.

This small coastal town bordering Gibraltar is one of the poorest in Spain. A third of people here are unemployed and in some neighbourhoods that figure rises to 80%. Drug trafficking from Morocco and armed gangs have become a problem for police.

Fifteen thousand residents have jobs in Gibraltar where wages are on average 20% higher. And Gibraltar needs them for the lifeblood of its economy, especially in the nursing, catering and cleaning industries.

What will change

As part of the UK's exit from the EU, the UK and Spain have agreed in principle that the land border will go, possibly within six months, but the terms of the deal first have to be made into a formal treaty with the EU:

  • The single road linking the territories will be widened to allow people and cars to travel freely

  • Some infrastructure will stay at the border, a few guards will remain on standby, and finalities still need to be worked out such as judging the necessity of certain customs checks away from the border and if so how they would work

  • For the border to disappear, Gibraltar will effectively become part of Europe's passport-free travel area - the Schengen zone - though there is a different use of language from both sides on whether it will be "part of", or "connected to" Schengen

  • With the border gone, new arrivals will only be checked if they >enter by sea at the port and by air

  • For the first time, as well as the Gibraltar border guards, there will be guards from the EU border and Coastguard Agency known as Frontex also checking passports.

Well, it's 5 months - and where does it stand - Politicians are dancing around.

What's interesting is Gibraltar could have recognized it needed to Unite the Campo long ago; and truly help those in La Linea and The Campo – DID IT? – and now, it's part of Picardo's rhetoric (see the treaty dance thread).

Where did Picardo get that idea?

Does he have ££ in his eyes now when it comes to what's happening in The Campo and wants to unite it for the globalists.

God will cause it to happen – it is prophesied – The Campo will be united Under Christ, not Satan:

Councillors in La Linea de la Concepcion to vote on city’s status

If approved, residents will then be asked to vote on whether or not they want the municipality to become an autonomous city with self-government like Ceuta and Melilla, Spain’s enclaves in north Africa.

Local government argues that the city’s dependence on Gibraltar warrants a change in status. If approved, a legal process would begin that could result in La Linea de la Concepcion remaining part of Cadiz province but no longer part of the area governed by the Junta de Andalucia.

This would be a positive move to UNITE THE CAMPO – The Camp of Gibraltar and the Rock of Gibraltar; Origins, Today and their Bright Future.

La Línea takes first step in bid to become an autonomous city

La Línea de la Concepción has taken its first steps into what its mayor, Juan Franco, called “terra incognita”, approving a council resolution seeking permission from Madrid to sample citizens’ views on La Linea becoming an ‘autonomous city’. The motion passed with the support of the majority of councillors, with PSOE members abstaining.

In a constructive debate between the party in power and the opposition over how to overcome the economic and social problems strangling the city, Helenio Fernández, spokesperson for the ruling La Línea 100x100, said the “public consultation” sought a way of “granting La Línea all the tools which would allow the city to face its problems and find solutions… to breathe, for this city to live, progress and develop itself.”

La Línea de la Concepción (Cádiz) does not want to be Andalusian and begins the process of independence

With this, it has achieved that the municipal plenary session gives the green light to independence process. Now, they will have to hold a referendum and, later, transfer the declaration of independence to the Congress of Deputies and to Senate.

The report endorsing the La Línea City Council initiative, signed by Antonio de Cabo de la Vega, Professor of Constitutional Law at the Complutense University of Madrid, states that «Article 2 of the Constitution, after affirming (and reaffirming) the principle of unity of Spain, collects and recognizes the right to autonomy for the ‘nationalities and regions’, which will be the ones that will from that moment be entitled to access at the constitutionally protected levels of self-government. The subjects of autonomy will therefore be nationalities and regions, both understood as territorial entities with defined cultural or historical characteristics. Rivers of ink have been poured on the meaning of both expressions that it is not necessary here or even to summarize, but we must already take into account, for the purpose of this opinion, that both subjects constitute a general principle that has, like every principle, an exception, and that it will be this exception that can be used to process a process of autonomy for the Line of the Conception ».

The ballot will take place in the next six-to-nine months and any result would have to be approved by the Cortes General, that is the Spanish parliament and Senate.
