The Red Alert movement, which brings together associations, companies and professionals from the entertainment sector and cultural events, announces a new mobilization on December 11 “by the agony suffered by the Events and Shows sector“.
Cultural events and entertainment cry out for their survival: five testimonies from the front row of the drama
This has been announced in a statement in which he also denounces that they have been “for more than 9 months claiming to the Public Administrations that the sector be recognized as especially affected and especially vulnerable”.
According to estimates from the associations that are part of the initiative, more than 700,000 people who previously worked professionally in this sector are now unemployed and at risk of exclusion due to the situation caused by the pandemic.
Red Alert assures that “they have requested the application of concrete and extraordinary measures” to be able to recover the activity, but they point out that it is “paralyzed, limited and restricted since last March” and “suffers a collapse due to the uncertainty of the evolution of the pandemic, and with the only certainty that it will be the last to recover. ”
Due to this situation “of abandonment, helplessness and neglect” by the Public Administrations in all territorial areas, Red Alert announces that they will take to the streets again “on 11D to remember everything that has already been communicated on many occasions and everything that has not been accomplished, as well as to continue giving visibility to the dramatic situation suffered by the 800,000 families living in the sector. ”
Under the slogan #AlertaDeMuto, the professionals of the Events and Entertainment Sector will mobilize this time before the public administrations whom they consider responsible “for the death of the sector.”
The 17 cities where the protests will take place are Albacete, Alicante, Almería, Palma, Ibiza, Barcelona, Castellón, Córdoba, Granada, Madrid, Malaga, Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Tarragona, Valencia, Valladolid and Zaragoza.
