Members of the INAH union urge officials to stop this event which, according to the union, only profits from cultural heritage….
MERIDA – Many technical and administrative workers of the National Union of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) asked for the cancellation of the concert of the Yucatecan singer-songwriter Armando Manzanero in the archaeological zone of Chichén Itzá, an event that is scheduled to be held next February 3rd.
About 100 union workers of the INAH strongly oppose the event. “We ask for the intervention of the federal and state authorities, because we can’t allow these facilities to be used for lucrative purposes,” said Juan Hernández Melchor, spokesman for the INAH workers.
They supported their protest with the Article 39 of the General Law of Cultural Rights, which prohibits profiting from cultural heritage, in addition to demanding that the anthropologist Diego Prieto Hernández, INAH technical secretary, revoke the decision of carrying out this musical event.
“We can’t let archaeological zones and cultural heritage keep being used for lucrative events, so this is a national protest, where we as INAH workers are protesting against this event,” said Hernández.
Likewise, he announced that the union’s National Congress agreed to hold demonstrations in the 32 states to oppose and reject that the archaeological zones of Mexico continue to be used for private profit, risking the structures left by indigenous ancestors.
He stressed that they have conducted impact studies that indicate that the equipment and metal structures damage the structures of the archaeological remains. In addition, sound equipment is so powerful that it damages the pyramids considerably, for which he blamed Prieto Hernández for authorizing the tribute to Armando Manzanero.
