Ángela Rodríguez Pam affirms that in Extremadura the cases of abuse do not stop growing


The Secretary of State for Equality and against Gender Violence, Ángela Rodríguez Pam, has shown this Saturday her concern about the closure of psychological care points for victims of sexist violence in some municipalities in the province of Cáceres, and has called on the Government of Guillermo Fernández Vara that keeps them open.

Rodríguez Pam has assured in the Plenary Assembly of the Network of Provincial Circles of Cáceres, which Podemos Extremadura has celebrated this Saturday in Plasencia, that “this supposes a failure of the institutions”.

The also State Secretary for Feminism and LGTBI of Podemos has stated that the Junta de Extremadura has signed the renewal of the Pact against Gender Violence, “and signing that pact implies making all the resources available so that no victim is left unattended and so that we arrive on time.”

In fact, Rodríguez Pam has warned that in Extremadura the cases of gender violence do not stop growing. “Currently there are more than 1,500 active cases, which imply some type of protection for the victims, and which affect 23 minors”, assured the Secretary of State for Equality, who has also insisted that “we have to put all the efforts so that the resources are not only open, but also so that the workers who are in them are not precarious.

Rodríguez Pam recalled that, from the Ministry of Equality, directed by Irene Montero, more than 17 million euros have been transferred to the Equality Department of the Junta de Extremadura for equality policies. For this reason, he has asked the Fernández Vara government to take charge of this situation “because there can be no point of care for victims closed.” “From the Ministry we are willing to do whatever is necessary so that these victim assistance points remain open,” he continued.

The Secretary of State for Equality made these statements at the beginning of the Plenary Assembly of the Cáceres Provincial Network of Circles, which was held this Saturday by Podemos Extremadura at the Las Claras Cultural Center in Plasencia. The spokesman for the formation, José Antonio González, explained that in this plenary not only the new territorial managers of the province of Cáceres in the Autonomous Citizen Council are consolidated and appointed, “but this congress is a listening body” .
