As a result of the institutional commemoration of October 9, insulting demonstrations, slander, insults and displays of contempt have been carried out against different municipal representatives by users of various groups of the social network Facebook.
Once the Board of Spokespersons were informed of the facts, the representatives of the different political groups, on behalf of the 21 councilors of the Corporation, have agreed to make public their rejection of these actions with the following statement:
«The institutional commemorative act of October 9 has been, precisely this year, a call for harmony, tolerance and respect. The participation of all municipal groups in this act, in which each one expressed their feelings regarding the Valencian and Valencian festival, has been tangible proof that all sensibilities have a place in our day and in any other.
What is not admissible, much less in our current society, democratic, of law, justice and freedoms, enriched with the lessons learned from the months of the pandemic, is incitement to hatred, disqualifications, false accusations and gross contempt words towards the ways of thinking, feeling or speaking of any person.
As representatives of the entire citizenry of Dénia, also diverse, but equally tolerant and respectful, we do not admit that social networks are used to injure anyone, with the excuse of freedom of expression.
We will condemn and denounce, with the tools that the Law puts at our disposal, these signs of irrationality that incite hatred and political and ideological persecution.
And we invite dianenses to reject this type of comments, to censor and report them and not to give coverage, neither with participation nor with passivity, to groups, pages or profiles on social networks whose sole objective is to spread intolerance » .
The councilors of the Municipal Corporation of Dénia: Elisabet Cardona, Rafa Carrió, Eva Catalá, Vicent Crespo, J. Antonio Cristóbal, Pepe Doménech, Raúl García de la Reina, Sandra Gertrúdix, Vicent Grimalt, Melani Ivars, Óscar Mengual, María Mut, Susana Mut, Maite Pérez, M.
