“Despite two months of continuous communication attempts, in order to prepare for this event with the best possible conditions, recommendations and safety, only a day before the Directorate General of Health (…) sent an unfavorable opinion”, which made it impossible. “Implement additional security measures or alternative march models, as well as not allow an administrator to withdraw from the same,” which is planned today.
“The issuance of such an unfavorable opinion at a time when not even public abolition is effective ends up translating, in practice, into a hidden form of restriction of political rights, specifically the right to demonstrate,” the organization argued in a statement.
“We feel that the DGD has shown a disregard for successive attempts at communication to plan a safe political march, and also a profound lack of knowledge about its nature and what it represents for our society,” it can be read in the same note.
The organization also emphasized that “recommended mitigation measures (…) to hold a rally at a more appropriate time (read the delay of the demonstration) include a wide range of pointless points.”
The disagreement, he explained, is the recommendation to take body temperature, have isolated toilets and record for all people involved.
He stressed that “some of the recommendations raise questions about their constitutionality and legality, and deserve enormous concern from the organized LGBTI + Pride March Committee.”
The organization concluded by saying: “We take into account this opinion and the time when disrespect and political error arrived.”
