THE founder of Spain’s green party EQUO has labelled Spain’s brick economy as ‘outrageous’, saying his work has only just begun.

“It’s been a very busy year,” said Juantxo Lopez de Uralde a year after EQUO was founded.

The ex-Greenpeace Spain boss added: “We have worked extremely hard to lay the groundwork for a different kind of party, one which is democratic and very different from the conventional parties.

“We have spread throughout Spain, gaining thousands of supporters and over 300,000 votes in Spain’s election.”

When asked what were the most important environmental issues Spain faces, Uralde said: “The economy of brick is still presented as the only option for economic growth, which is outrageous.

“And of course, then there is Spain’s energy model.”
