“We had intermittent cuts for three days. They cut two or three hours and then come back. But after a while we ran out of light again. We’ve been like this since Sunday. But now everything is worse: yesterday they cut off at 11:30 and we still don’t have service,” he said clarion Gabriela, a neighbor from the Nágera neighborhood.
A neighbor said that in her apartment, due to the lack of light, even the water was cut off. “I have my 90-year-old mother, I’ve always worked and I still work, and it can’t be that we live like this, with the toilet full of shit, there’s no water, it’s not right”.
Muiños asked for the intervention of the Civil Protection, the Fire Brigade and Aysa to “immediately provide drinking water to the affected residents”. Furthermore, he requested that “the police forces of the Municipality ensure the tranquility of the areawithout repression against neighbors who demonstrate for their legitimate rights”.
