He PSOE consider that he tribute to the victims of the coronavirus that took place this Sunday in Madrid it has become “a party act” and “a press conference”. Specifically, criticism is directed against PP Y Citizens, since the ceremony has been carried out by the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, the regional vice president, Ignacio Aguado, the mayor of the city, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, and the vice mayor, Begoña Villacís, among other assistants
The tribute has been promoted by the Government of the Madrid’s community, who wanted to dedicate a solemn ceremony to the deceased on coronavirus in Puerta del Sol, where institutional representatives have inaugurated a plaque to commemorate them. “The people of Madrid in memory of the victims of covid-19 and especially those who died in solitude,” reads the legend, located next to the one dedicated to those killed in the 11-M attacks.
“Carrying out acts without the representatives of the people of Madrid is a declaration of principles,” said the deputy spokesman for the Madrid Socialists, Jose Cepeda. In a message on Twitter, Cepeda has asked the attendees – referring to Ayuso, Aguado, Almeida and Villacís- “that they do not use the institutions of all” citizens “if they wish to make a party act”. “We will continue working daily to avoid more victims,” he added.
Carrying out acts without the representatives of the people of Madrid is a declaration of principles.
If they want to hold a Party act, let them not use everyone’s institutions.

José Cepeda has not been the only socialist who has spoken in this regard. So has Daniel viondi, a PSOE deputy in Congress who has put figures on the “excluded” parties and representatives, and has called what happened “immoral”: “They mount a tribute to the victims of the covid in Madrid that is a press conference of Ayuso, Almeida and Aguado”.
Immoral. They mount a Tribute to the victims of the Covid in Madrid that is a press conference of Ayuso, Almeida and Aguado.

“We are all with the victims”
“We are all with the victims”, has stressed for her part the socialist deputy Pilar Sánchez Acera, who has regretted the celebration of “an act of tribute to those who died from covid-19 in which they have excluded the parliamentary groups from the Madrid Assembly.”

Nor has the PSOE been the only formation that has criticized what happened this Sunday with the tribute to the victims of the coronavirus. Since More Madrid, the regional deputy Hugo Martinez Abarca has regretted that the ceremony has become “in a new act of propaganda for their partisan ends”.
Today Ayuso, Almeida, Aguado and Villacís have not made a “tribute to the victims of the Covid”; what they have done is a new act of propaganda taking advantage of the victims for their partisan ends.
One more shame that does not help to get out of this one.
