Report 26: Fraud and improvisation in military spending. 2016 Spanish military budget analysis

Written by Centre Delàs on . Posted in Informes

Portada Informe 26Fraud and improvisation in military spending. 2016 Spanish military budget analysis

Every year, after the Spanish Government submits the proposal for General State Budget, the Centre Delàs d’Estudis per la Pau analyses the military expenditure in this country in order to acquire an accurate knowledge of the real spending allocated to defence-related activities. The initial budget for Defence in 2016 is conservative in relation to the one in 2015, when it was increased for the fist time since the beginning of the international financial crisis. At the same time, it is clearly an electioneering strategy since it has been submitted by the government as a "social" budget after years of severe cost cuttings.

This report reveals how the Defence budget is "tailored" in order to make it appear inferior to the public than it will be in the end.

Informe colombia

Asedio a las comunidades: Los impactos de una empresa catalana, Grup TCB, en Buenaventura, Colombia

El presente informe nació de dos inquietudes: La primera, provocada por la situación de extrema violencia y de barbarie que se vive en la ciudad de Buenaventura. Una violencia conocida, pero que más de 30.000 bonaverenses supieron poner de actualidad en las portadas de la prensa colombiana en una valiente manifestación realizada el 19 de febrero del pasado año. Y la segunda inquietud se generó al saber que una empresa catalana, el Grup Marítim Terminal de Contenidors de Barcelona, SL, (Grup TCB), tiene una millonaria inversión en el puerto de esta ciudad del Pacífico.
