| The left-wing party defends that with the implementation of the video surveillance system the PP is criminalizing all Yeclanos | Izquierda Unida-Verdes shows its opposition to the implementation of a surveillance camera system in the streets of Yecla, considering that its implementation will cause a limitation of the individual rights of citizens. The left wing formation denounces that part of the video surveillance system will have the ability to control and record the identity of the people who enter and leave the municipality.
Thus, from the party they defend that this fact will limit a fundamental right as important as personal privacy.
In addition, they recriminate the PP that people who have access to the surveillance system will be able to determine, without any judicial control, if a specific citizen is in Yecla. According to Alberto Martínez "Yecla is one of the cities with the lowest crime rate in Spain and the installation of such an invasive surveillance system has no justification." Likewise, the spokesperson for Izquierda Unida defends that “the cameras restrict the freedom of the people of Yecla, who, for example, have the right to have our entrances and exits from the town not be searched or not to be constantly observed while we walk down the street.
In addition, the cameras are not going to prevent crimes, since criminals manage not to be recorded ”. From Izquierda Unida-Verdes they defend that public administrations have to put all their efforts in educating in values ??of coexistence and not so much in persecuting and criminalizing all citizens, as the PP is doing in Yecla from the municipal government with the installation of this system of social control.
