The alternative budget proposal of the coalition Unidos Podemos, under the slogan ‘Budgets to live up to the circumstances’, incorporates the demands of civil society in order to prioritize the needs of people as a counterproposal to the budgets of the Spanish Government of Mariano Rajoy which jeopardize labor and social rights as well as deepen the precariousness, on the one hand, consolidating an economy based on social cuts and fiscal austerity which creates more inequalities and poverty.
