The Association for the unemployed will be ratified within the next fifteen days. They will draw up internal rules, appoint a board of directors and appoint a chairman, or president. It also plans to make an appointment with the Mayor to bring to his attention their concerns and their proposals.
They have initiated an extensive poster campaign to appeal to neighbours who want to participate in an association for the unemployed and long-term unemployed.
They have already attracted interested parties through their page on Facebook (Associacíon de parados de Rincón de la Victoria). They have received the help of a local lawyer who has made his office available for legal advice.
There are 5,000 unemployed in Rincón and the association want them to join together with others in a similar situation to try and bring about a change in their lives and a way out of the crisis. The global crisis has engulfed many ordinary people in its wake.
