As an alternative, they advocate the use of technology to develop non-polluting and noiseless visual glasses.
Ana Béjar, candidate for mayor of Madrid for PACMA, has presented today through a press release a proposal in her electoral program to end the use of firecrackers in the city of Madrid and to replace it with an alternative silent and non-polluting one.
The party, which protects the rights of animals and the environment, believes that “it is necessary to take concrete measures to guarantee social and animal welfare and to reduce the negative effects on health and the environment associated with the use of traditional fireworks.”
They maintain that fireworks, though widely used in celebrations and festive events, can cause great suffering to both animals and humans.
“Animals with more acute auditory sensitivity, such as dogs, cats and birds, can die or develop severe anxiety as a result of the noise. The noise and flashes of fireworks cause accidents, falls and injuries year after year. In children, The elderly and those belonging to the autism spectrum can also develop severe physical and mental distress,” he explains.
PACMA advocates the use of a silent option that allows you to celebrate without harming animals or disturbing the peace of neighbors. To this end, in its election program for these 28M municipal elections, Badger promotes the use of lighting technologies and visual effects that provide a high-level show without resorting to explosive devices.
As a result, the candidate points out, “kilograms and kilos” of pollution falling on roads and buildings after a fire will be saved, as well as reducing the risk of fire.
The Animalist Party urges the Madrid authorities and the general public to seriously consider this proposal and take effective measures to gradually eliminate traditional fireworks in favor of a more sustainable alternative, “to co-exist with animals and Adapted for the good of all men and women of Madrid”.
