He pointed out that the idea of ​​this protest is to create awareness among the authorities, so that take pedestrians into account in the decisions they make, instead of benefiting only a group of businessmen.

“This is an exercise in protecting public space, thinking that if at the end of the day, trade is not encouraged, it has to do directly with a pandemic issue, we cannot forget that there was a health crisis, which for more than two years It has stopped us in some ways,” Mariel said.

He pointed out that: “the fact of opening a path for pedestrian mobility, precisely motivates people to buy in the spaces, that we stop and with greater attention we stop in stores, it is thinking that it facilitates the transfer of market tenants , which then require ‘little devils’ to move their merchandise”.
