Valencia Acoge is an association totally independent of any other association, trade union, party, body, administration, etc. After more than ten years of work and after many ups and downs, the association has made its own space within the NGO circuit for the defence of equality and rights of immigrants. Apart from ideologies, the main motivation that unites the members of Valencia Acoge is the defence of the rights of foreigners in our country. We particularly identify with the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, subscribed by Spain. We must demand its application, which should inspire government actions in all fields, and denounce the hypocrisy of western states in fulfilling the obligations involved in signing international agreements.
