Hundreds of people gathered at the doors of La Abadía Theater to protest against the premiere of the play ‘Altsasu’ shouting “Don’t forget or forgive, ETA in jail”.
Specifically, sources from the Government Delegation explained to Europa Press that the estimated number of attendees There were 450 people. The audience was gathered by Vox, which also criticized the production of María Goiricelaya. The group defended that they were against this production because «the dignity of the victims is more than freedom».
This was stated in front of the media by the spokesperson of Vox in the Madrid Assembly, Rocío Monasterio, who criticized that the work “attacks the dignity of victims of terrorismthe dignity of the Civil Guard, the dignity of its civil guards and their girlfriends who were beaten in Alsasua.
The Monasterio defended that since its formation it believed in freedom “well understood” and maintained that the game “Aim to put terrorists and victims on equal terms».
“The content of the game is very serious, But what is more serious is that it was also paid with the funds of all the people of Madrid., which comes from our taxes. “A work that tells the story of Bildu is funded,” he commented.
Vox requested the resignation of the cultural advisor of the Community of Madrid Mariano de Paco, because “it is unacceptable that the funds of all the residents of Madrid are spent on a job that equates to terrorists and victims.”
Likewise, Monasterio pointed out that the situation is “extreme” because Podemos supports the Community of Madrid. “This is something that has never been seen before. The Popular Party must think about what it has done,” he said.
Ortega Smith called for the withdrawal of subsidies
For his part, the Vox spokesperson for the Madrid City Council, Javier Ortega Smith, wondered why the Madrid City Council the subsidy of La Abadía Theater was not withdrawn “As long as it is not guaranteed that no apology for terrorism, or shaming of the victims, or shaming of the Civil Guard will be made here.”
«230 were killed by the terrorist group, we were told that this is freedom of expression. That’s a euphemism, that’s hypocrisy. Article 20 of the Constitution, which you know very well, talks about the right to freedom of expression, but as long as the limits are not violated,” he said.
During his speech, Ortega Smith cited the Supreme Court and the Constitutional Court because “they made it clear that the right to freedom of expression cannot be appealed when the attacked is a fundamental property.”
«I ask society that when some people fill their mouths talking about freedom of expression, they ask themselves the following question. “Do you ask for freedom of expression if a play is performed in a theater that is an apology for National Socialism, fascism, or any of the terrorist organizations that are killing the world,” he launched.
