Flying the flag at half-mast rejected by Javea


JAVEA opposes the European Union-Turkey agreement to return migrants and refugees to Turkey after they reach Greece.

 “We want to show our most energetic rejection,” said Javea mayor Jose Chulvi, who explained the council had insisted that Spain’s acting government  should not back the controversial measure.  

Unlike San Vicente, Elche or Castellon the town hall did not remove the EU flag or fly it at half-mast.

“Here in Javea we did not opt to remove the EU flag from public buildings.  On the contrary, it is now that we want to feel more decidedly European than ever,” Chulvi declared.  “We want to say that what we have built between us with so much effort cannot be wasted in decisions taken by a group of politicians who are not equal to the challenges that this new century demands of us all.”
