The mayor of EH Bildu in Beasain (Guipúzcoa) who has resigned this Saturday, Maddi Imaz, has been denounced by the Ertzaintza for alarm status “non-compliance” after participating last night in a dance with which dozens of people celebrated the Loinaz festivities, although they had been suspended by the pandemic.
Imaz has submitted his resignation to Saturday EH Bildu in a letter, spread through Twitter, in which he acknowledged having acted with “irresponsibility”, an attitude that, as he indicated, does not agree with the position that his training has maintained in the face of the pandemic.
The images of the dance, in which you see dozens of young people Circling around a lamppost to which a person who is acclaimed by the participants climbs without respecting the security measures established by the pandemic, have been widely disseminated through social networks throughout this morning.

At first, the Ertzaintza advanced its intention to denounce those people who could be identified in this video, after which, this noon, a patrol of the Autonomous Police has come to Beasain to communicate to Imaz that he had been denounced for breach of the state of alarm.
“Other people’s shame”
At the same time, this police force continues with the instruction of the administrative and sanctioning file that it keeps open about the dance, an incident for which the mayor of Beasain, Aitor Aldasoro, has said to feel “other people’s shame”.
“Yesterday does not have a name. I appeal to the people to take what has happened calmly: a specific event, and to serve so that in the days to come they will act with the sense of responsibility that comes with it,” Aldasoro explained in statements to Efe.
