The municipal groups of PSOE, PP, Ciudadanos and Valladolid Take the Word have rejected this Monday in the plenary session of the City Council of the Valladolid capital a motion in which Vox proposed the paralysis of workshops on equality in public and private schools in the city because it defends that in them schoolchildren are "indoctrinated" about gender identity and sexual education.
The proposal of the party led by Santiago Abascal wanted the City Council to paralyze some workshops that are taught in public and private schools in the city, in which, according to the only mayor of Vox, Javier García Bartolomé, "talks are given in the purest style podemita” with “sexual and sectarian” content related to gender and sexual identity.
As the spokesperson for the Municipal Socialist Group, Pedro Herrero, one of the companies that gives these workshops, has subsequently assured, "Data Consulting" is directed by the new manager of Ecyl, Javier Moreno Espeja, "appointed by Vox" as part of the organizational chart of the Ministry of Employment and Industry, directed by the counselor appointed by the training that the Autonomous Government shares with the PP Mariano Veganzones.
The socialist spokesman and the mayor of the city, Óscar Puente, have asked Javier García Bartolomé to explain if he knew that he wants some workshops not to be given that a company of "a man from Vox" is awarded.
Little more than half an hour after the debate on this motion, a press release has been sent to the media, on the letterhead of the Valladolid City Council, in which it is stressed that «Vox proposes to suppress Equality workshops, despite which is taught by a company of a high position of the Junta de Castilla y León appointed by his own party».
The rest of the municipal groups have positioned themselves against the position of Vox and the party with which it shares the regional government, according to its spokesperson in the Consistory, Irene Núñez, has reproached that García Bartolomé's proposal "part of affirmations not quite correct."
In fact, Núñez has stressed that the PP has been able to learn about what is being worked on in these workshops, which have "more than ten years of experience" -they started during the government of the PP mayor, Javier León de la Riva- and they think that "In no case is its objective to indoctrinate", which is why it has deduced that this motion has been carried, with "similar" content, in other Spanish municipalities and the spokesperson in Valladolid "has not bothered to modify it."
Thus, the 'popular' mayor has stressed that the objective of the workshops is "to prevent discrimination and violence due to" and to implement values such as "tolerance, respect" and to avoid the violation of people's rights, reports Ep ..
