I was born in Ofra, a working-class neighbourhood of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where I have lived most of my 33 years. I am the son of a teacher and an electrician, I always attended a state school and I hold a Diploma in Environmental Chemistry. I work as an operator at the oil refinery and these last nine years I took an active part in the union struggle at my company. I also have supported other groups of workers who were suffering from cuts in their employment rights. Besides, from adolescence I have risen up against injustices and I have participated in the student movement, I have fought against wars and I have taken part in civil rights movements and in the 15M.
