By any chance would you abandon one of your family members, Mr. Yuste?


I am writing you with the intention of letting you know our indignation and complete rejection of the grave declarations that you made last week, making us responsible for the accidents that are caused by the policy of dispersion. These declarations seem very serious to us, only understandable when one realizes that you are just simply giving voice to this policy of revenge and extermination that was designed two decades ago against us, the family members, the well-known policy of dispersion.

Facing that we have also confirmed the position of stagnation and even regression that the Spanish government maintains and the copy-cat politics of the French government.
