Town Hall Proclamation Appeals to Civic Spirit for Sanfermines
The Proclamation, signed by the mayor of Pamplona, appeals to civic spirit during Sanfermines such as obeying ordinances, traffic, organization of events, the Chupinazo, Encierro or the Encierrillo. The strategy to be used against sexist aggressions is also included.
The main novelty has to do with the Chupinazo, the usual prohibitions about entering the Plaza in front of the Town Hall and in the Plaza del Castillo with support poles, glass bottles and glasses or unopened cans of drinks. Flags or large cloths under which there might be a numerous group of participants are forbidden because of the possibility of indirect or direct dangers
Against Sexist Aggressions
As was the case in former years, the Proclamation includes a description of the strategy, “Pamplona, Free of Sexist Aggressions”. The Town Hall is asking all citizens to take an active part in stopping any type of aggression against women and to help of support the victim and protect her from the aggressor. The Town Hall will not tolerate and will legally pursue this type of behavior so that Sanfermines can be fiestas in which women can enjoy themselves freely, safely and equally.
Along these lines, the sale of materials such as t-shirts, pins, etc. with sexist writings or drawings are prohibited. If this is detected, the material can be confiscated. This order has as its objective to never stop moving towards the goal of fiestas free of sexist aggressions.
