FACUA-Consumers in Action is a non-governmental and non-profit organization. Since its foundation in 1981, it has been dedicated to the defence of consumer rights. FACUA can be considered a progressive, democratic, plural and participatory organization, independent from government, political parties, religious ideologies and business interests.
Our organization of men and women advocates the importance of improvements in market quality, labelling control and regulation, and truthful advertising of products and services.
We are challenging the current consumer society model, which is based on hoarding and flaunting products in an irrational and wasteful manner, exploiting less-developed countries and wasting the planet's natural resources.
With our network of regional delegations and associations and the support provided by several thousand members and volunteers, our organization has a strong presence throughout Spain.
FACUA's governing board and staff is composed of both experienced and young professionals. A number of our more experienced members suffered under the repression of the Franco era, and played an active role in the defence of liberty and democracy throughout the period of dictatorship. Our younger members consider the organization as a way for them to contribute to the improvement and development of our society.
