Winning Archena joins the "march for equality" convened for November 17 (09/11/2018)

Both from Izquierda Unida and Podemos we have criticized the act "the day of the Iberian male", as one of its organizers calls it.

Act that we consider "macho and proper of other times" and we understand a reaction essential that not all the residents of Archena share this macho vision of society.

And we encourage all citizens to participate in the march organized on November 17 by the feminist association Sorority Archena.

On October 13 Ganar Archena made public his denounce of the act "The day of man, the king of your house", supported by the City of Archena, an act that we qualified as "macho" and "own of other times."

Since then, the social and media uproar that has been given to this event has been a lot, in spite of which the Mayor of Archena, Patricia Fernández, has maintained the support of the City Council of Archena, making use of the absolute majority that the Popular Party .

Support of the consistory that has been maintained even when they have transcended some audios in which one of the organizers alluded to that day as "the day of the Iberian male", even opposing it to "the day of the woman or the day of the gay", as he himself affirms in said audios.

From Ganar Archena we understand that a social response was essential to show the discontent for the institutional support of exaltation of machismo from the institutions.

It seems inconceivable to us that while there are hundreds of examples of institutions in favor of the feminist movements, our local government stands against the feminist movements with this act of exaltation of machismo.

We regret that when half the country is organizing days to highlight the struggle against sexist violence for the day of November 25, from our town hall not only is not taking any action, but is promoting an act of exaltation of the machismo.

That is why from our municipal group we demand the withdrawal of institutional support for this act, the call for action around November 25 for the elimination of violence against women and we do not add to the feminist march for equality that will take place in Archena on November 17 and will depart at 12:00 from the local sports center.

In the same way we want to appeal to all our neighbors to join the fight for equality and to banish stereotypes that have little or nothing to do with our times.
