Citizens regrets that the PP government has not initiated the file to declare the Feast of the Virgin Intangible Heritage of Humanity, by UNESCO (30/11/2018)

The orange formation believes that supporting our parties by the municipal government, is not to participate in their parades, but to work and do whatever steps are necessary to bring them to their best and put them in the place they deserve

A few days after the start of the Fiestas Patronales de Yecla, and with the PP government's legislature about to end, Ciudadanos wonders what has been the promise made by the government of our City Council, to start the file so that our Fiestas Employers are declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity, the answer is NOTHING.

In October 2016, the city council constituted an institutional commission, composed of representatives of the municipal government and members of the opposition groups and the Association of Mayordomos, together with a technical committee formed by professionals and scholars in the field, with the aim of to start the file and the necessary procedures for that purpose.

For this the municipal government allocated € 8,000 in the budgets for the year 2017, but far from starting work, of those initial € 8,000, € 6,562.22 was allocated for other tasks that had nothing to do with their initial destination, leaving said item with € 1,437.78 of remaining unused credit.

In the year 2018, 8,000 € were re-allocated to the program for intangible heritage (UNESCO), of which 5,000 € were transferred to other items, leaving 3,000 € as a remainder of credit, which, after one month Shortly after the end of the year, there has been no investment in anything related to the program so that the feasts of the Virgin of Yecla are declared a World Heritage Site.

According to Antonio Puche, spokesman for the municipal group Ciudadanos;

"Our festivities are a legacy whose essence has been preserved unharmed throughout the centuries and the fact that they have arrived thus to this day and keep all their symbolism, as it was done in the seventeenth century, has been for the effort of our ancestors.

For what is a moral obligation, we have the yeclanos and the government that represents us, to protect our parties, so they last as they have reached our days.

The Association of Mayordomos is doing a praiseworthy work in this sense, but we must shield and ensure that the Patron Saint Festivities of Yecla will be perpetuated in time and the next step that can be taken in this sense, is the declaration of Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. "

This will not only guarantee the perpetuity and conservation of this heritage, but will give the opportunity to be eligible for funding of heritage conservation projects, as well as opening the doors of our city to international tourism on the days when our festivities take place employers.
