From the Ecosocialist Red and MST, we have an alternative proposal: prohibit any method that pollutes; comprehensive agrarian reform to end the monopoly of our land; reorganize production according to social needs, with control and management of labor and social majorities, and ensure retraining floor with an identical economic rights to those affected. And to decide everything, activate participatory mechanisms, as the referendum, ie real democracy to determine public policy. That's our way. He 27 September, it is felt an immense green tide in self-defense. Now is when.
