The City of Archena condemns the lie of the PSOE on the festivities of 'El Polvorín' (22/08/2018)

A tweet appeared on social networks and subsequent press release by the Municipal Socialist Group has created a great indignation among the Archena Municipal Government Team.

In said press release the Municipal Socialist Group Spokesman, Gonzalo Caracena affirmed that "the Archena PP Government Team has almost completely annulled the activities centered on this celebration".

The answer has not been left waiting and the First Municipal Authority, Patricia Fernandez, has strongly condemned these demonstrations to be "totally false, since the parties of 'The Other Lao and El Polvorín' are increasing, year after year, the amount of activities and the quality of their party program ", according to his words.

Also, the Mayor of Archena has asked the socialist municipal group to "stop deceiving and confusing the archeneros, because precisely this year has increased the budget for these holidays, and the commission of neighborhood parties, along with numerous collective involved, have scheduled more and better acts, starting on August 31 and ending on September 9 with the pilgrimage in honor of San Juan Evangelista.

The Mayor herself has indicated that the councilors of the PSOE "left the plenary session on September 18, 2017 where the dates of the Archena festivities were approved for 2018, and did not attend this year's, where the same theme was discussed again for the 2019, and where the day of September 1 and the day of Corpus Christi are held as local holidays, thus demonstrating their irresponsibility and lack of coherence with their words, manifesting with that attitude something that we are already accustomed to perceive of them, and it is the little defense and support that they make of our patronal and institutional celebrations, as well as the neglect of their functions as councilors of the opposition ".

The festivities of 'El Polvorín', therefore, will continue to be celebrated on September 1 along with the festivities of 'El Otro Lao' because it is precisely that place where the great explosion of the military powder keg took place, but when it coincides on Saturday, the change was approved on September 11, Tuesday, coinciding also with another historical moment for our town, such as the signing of the Puebla Charter or Population Letter, and thus achieving that archeneros and archeneras can enjoy another local holiday, in addition to September 1, 'Día del Polvorín'.

Among the performances scheduled for these festivities of 'El Polvorín and El Otro Lao', the Mayor highlighted the star performance of the Murcia Salva Ortega, which will be held on the big day of the Festival, on September 1, as well as the traditional parade of comparsas and floats, the night of the gachasmigas, the great sardine, the dance festivals and numerous activities for the little ones, up to a total of more than twenty acts, so we do not understand the lie of the socialist municipal group when saying that the activities for those days have been canceled.
