The Community of Madrid chaired by Isabel Díaz Ayuso wants to censor a campaign by the Getafe City Council –governed by PSOE and Podemos– that tries to publicize the new Law of Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom, known as the law of ‘only if it is Yes’. The general director of Equality of the regional government, Patricia Reyes -formerly leader of Ciudadanos-, sent this Wednesday a letter addressed to the deputy mayor and councilor for feminisms, Alba Leo, in which she asks that the Madrid consistory “rectify” and not publicize the regulation supported by a vast majority in Congress. She also asks him to send all the material from said campaign.
“We do not find it convenient or opportune that an information campaign paid for with public money be used to propagandize a law that is making it possible to lower sentences for convicted sexual offenders, which has generated enormous legal uncertainty and deep and understandable social alarm. ”, they defend from the Ministry of Social Policies about the letter from Reyes.
The regional government also issues a warning to the Getafe City Council and mentions a financing agreement between both administrations and requests all the graphic material that they are going to use in the campaign in question (posters, banners, banners… etc), the name of the speakers who will participate in the talks, in addition to the selection criteria used to choose them and finally, the text of the manifesto that will be read on November 24. In this way, says the general director of Equality, “possible problems when justifying the expenses attributable to the agreement” will be avoided.
“Not only are we not going to remove a single sign, but this afternoon at 6:30 p.m. we are going to demonstrate in Getafe (Plaza España) to vindicate this wonderful Law and to tell machismo that their insults and threats are not going to stop us,” Alba Leo has responded on his social networks.
