Independent groups of workers and users of Public Health have created a platform to protest against the recent health care reform. The movement, called Universal Health Yes I ( @ Yosisanidaduniv ), whose main proposal disobedience and objection against the new Decree-Law 16/2012, imposed by the Government in the context of cuts, austerity and social protests .
The decree will enter into force on September 1, aims, according to the Ministry of Health, "to ensure the universality of the law," and, in the words of the Popular Party government is a step toward "true universal" and " discourages waste . "
Health as a business
However, critics agree that the decree, which will leave a health card to 150,000 people , is designed to change the health system and create a new assurance system, that is, a system that distinguishes between persons insured and uninsured . Put thus endanger the health system accessible to all of that so far enjoyed Spain. The website platform understands this:
Patricia (this was the name used), a member of the platform against the decree, said it intended to lead to a system "as the U.S., where health is a business."
How?: Restricting access to health card. The decree was taken away so as to undocumented persons over age 26 who have never signed up for Social Security. This is in addition to other rights such as cuts or medical prepayment some features that were previously free (as prostheses) cease to be.
In practice, although the reform affects a large number of people immediately feared by people without papers, which will be completely unprotected from 1 September. So Twitter is reflected in the recent news that the Government will charge about 700 illegal immigrants per year (more expensive than health insurance) for healing, awakening an almost universal rejection.
According to Patricia, the royal decree is not only unconstitutional, but also is unfair, and that's the main reason for the objection. The outrage grows further as the government benefits to private hospitals to the detriment of public health.
The Facebook page of the digital platform has uploaded a video showing affected statements and objectors, with the message that "everyone has the right to health".
Instructions for disobedience
Noting that conscientious objection is a right "recognized, but poorly regulated" and that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes health as one of the principal rights, the web platform proposes to create a network of objectors within the toilet building. This offers several models of conscientious objection, directed the medical staff, nursing and ancillary personnel, and other instructions and legal documents and information.
Defending the idea is that both the staff and the administration should work, and that even users who lack medical card need to apply and when they are denied, "who use". They also warn of possible difficulties and problems they may face an objector.
So far, about 1000 doctors have joined the initiative of conscientious objection to provide health care to undocumented immigrants. Meanwhile, on the other hand, Health has warned that they can not care for illegal immigrants under penalty of sanctions: the war for health is open.
