It was bothersome for us not to be able to hear our speaker very well

on Monday´s forum because of the music.

 

Musicians need to respect the hard work of event organizers and

working groups. I am sure they will understand that sometimes they may

need to stop or go somewhere else. The red thing is a strategic place

for teach ins and other informative activities as it is the area of

the plaza with the most transit. Let´s proove that we are working to

build up a true democracy and not a party.

 

 Perhaps we can encourage them to play at other times, such as after

the GA.
