Two friends of Molina de Segura argue heatedly in front of the drawn blind of a bar in Molina de Segura, shortly after midday. “What a shame. If they look for me, they find me, ”she raises her voice. They maintain a relative safety distance and only remove the mask at times to squeeze two beers that they have served themselves in plastic glasses and that they rest on a pile of chairs and tables stacked and chained until the pandemic and the authorities do so. allow. Citizen anger is something more difficult to tie.
Neither the lock on the hotel industry, nor the prohibition of meetings of non-cohabitants, not even the gale that also hit Molina de Segura prevented many neighbors from sharing their anger yesterday in the middle of the street as a result of the storm that the mayor of the city has unleashed. locality, Esther Clavero, when “skipping the line” for vaccination, criticizes Ángel, who is already over 70 years old, is retired and is a patient at risk. And he still hasn’t been vaccinated.
“A very big disappointment”
“I am on the left, but I want Clavero to go,” says his friend, Ángeles. “I don’t belong to anyone, but I also want him to leave,” he supports. “It is true that he has cancer, but there are also many people with cancer. And small children. The doctor who signed the paper should also go to the fucking street. And the 400 from the regional government who have also been vaccinated. Put it like this, please, ”the woman demands. Ángel makes it clear that in Molina de Segura “we do not want cheats”, and both believe that the mayor of the municipality “must resign right now.” “How can it be that a person on the left thinks of himself before others?” Asks Ángeles, incredulous. “It is a very big disappointment.”
“It is clear that he has not set a good example”, summarizes Claudia in the company of two friends
This is how Jorge, Margarita and Claudia also think, who share chatter and sunbeams in the local Company Park. “Someone in charge should be more concerned with the elderly, with vulnerable people who are most in need and also with health workers who are fighting the pandemic in hospitals,” criticizes Margarita, a native of Peru. “What is clear is that he has not set a good example,” summarizes Claudia, from Colombia. The ship’s captain has to be the last to jump when it sinks. Well, the opposite has happened here ”, exemplifies Jorge, who came from Honduras to Spain a couple of years ago.
Next to the door of the City council, the critic was more contained. Juan, sitting alone with his mask on a bench, tries to put on a cape: «I think the mayor is doing well, but in this matter she has been wrong. I also think there are other more important things to warm your head with. So we are not going anywhere », he reflects.
