| The result of the voting of the participatory budgets of 2018 is not fulfilled | Putting a photograph instead of restoring the original altarpiece is unacceptable Within the framework of the participatory budgets of 2018, the citizens of Cartagena chose in a majority way the enhancement of the Chapel of the Council, and not to put a photograph.
Thus, the will of Cartagena is flagrantly breached, because in that vote the City Council was not given freedom to convert the Chapel of the Council into an interpretation center. The chapel became municipal by the donation of D.
Pedro Antonio Pereti in the 18th century with the commitment to maintain there, in perpetuity, the devotion to the Virgen del Rosell.
While the Four Cartagena Saints and the carving of the Patron Saint of Cartagena shine on the main altar of Santa María de Gracia, the Bishopric has been lying about Bulas de Traslado for centuries and despising a very important religious building for the history of the Carthaginian Diocese.
This sacred space should be the object of exquisite pampering, care and refinement by the municipal government.
Nothing forces you to do the botched job of simulating an altarpiece with planks and sticking a vinyl on its back with the photograph of Antonio Pasaporte.
This would be much worse than incurring a false history and therefore we request the necessary modification of the project. It should be remembered that after twenty years of intense struggle for the restoration of the Cathedral of Cartagena Santa María la Mayor, we managed to get the Bishopric to comply with the obligation to open the building four days a month for public visits, thus reactivate the dormant love of the Cartagena for its Cathedral.
An immediate consequence of this, the General Directorate forced the Bishopric to invest a little more than 60,000 euros in alleviating the conservation deficiencies that the property had generated after decades of neglect.
An achievement that was not in the plans of the Bishop of Cartagena D.
José Manuel Lorca Planes, who had registered the property as a site. Currently, we continue to fight for compliance with the resolution issued in 2015 by the regional body that obliges the Bishopric to open to the public on Saturdays.
The regional government, to gain time and provide coverage to Mr.
Bishop, wanted to force us to present allegations in a procedure "new and beyond all legal coverage" reopening again what had already become firm by a resolution that the Bishop fails to comply with.
total impunity. After numerous procedures that generated a double administrative silence, we achieved the Master Plan for the Cathedral of Cartagena.
The regional government's attempts at misrepresentation continued as they rejected an appeal, but at the same time they announced with great fanfare the Master Plan, subsidizing the Bishopric with 48,000 euros for its preparation. These lines serve to encourage Mrs.
Mayor, who is sold so Cartagena, to put the photocopy of the altarpiece on the headboard of her bed and limit herself to the basics, remove dampness, clean covers and recover what little remains without incur in false histories.
Moreover, if the protocol that he signed with the Ministry of Development goes along the same lines and his contest of ideas is going to transform the memory of Cartagena into a bland scene, we would be grateful if our identity would be killed elsewhere. Virgin of Charity Citizen Platform
