PSPV General Secretary Ximo Puig held a meeting on Friday with singer and co-founder of Al Tall Vicent Torrent to “express his sympathy and sympathy” following PP Y Vox’s decision to remove his name from Torrent Hall, the Valencian musician’s birthplace. A proposal that caused a lot of controversy and caused many entities such as the Acció Cultural, the Escola Valenciana or the Plataforma per la Llengua to call a rally in the Hall Square to denounce the decision of the City Council and show their affection for the Valencian musicians.
After his meeting with Torrent, Puig noted that “removing Vicent Torrent’s name is an attack on the culture and sense of civilisation”. The former President of the General – during his tenure Vicent Torrent to the Order of the Council of Cultural Merit – noted that a society without identity and without culture is a “separate society”.
In this sense, the socialist leader wanted to remember that the name of Vicent Torrent in the hall “was put up as a testament to a long march of time in favor of Valencia, especially in the times when it was outlawed”.
In this context, they explained from the PSPV in a statement, Ximo Puig also confirmed that the democrats “we will not remain silent, they will not silence us” and indicated that the responsibility for these things to happen “is not only from the extreme right, but also from the PP that has made a decision that goes against the social majority”.
