Madrid / The demonstration and events with which Madrid will celebrate the Pride 2017 (WorldPride) between June 28 and July 2 will have no noise limit, temporarily suspended by the city council because it is an event “of special civic significance and general interest”.
It is the second time that these exemptions are applied after 2016 in Plenary of the City of Madrid declared these holidays of general interest to avoid sanctions like those in 2015.
In 2015, LGBT associations were fined 12,400 Euros to overcome the noise levels allowed in the stage where the end of the demonstration was celebrated and in which was the mayor Manuela Carmena.
No noise will be measured in the demonstration from 17.00 on Sunday to 1 July, the day of the march, until 3:00 on Sunday 2, the march will run from the roundabout of Carlos V to Colón.
There will be limitations in the square of Chueca, although permanent exhibitions are authorized between 8.00am from 28th June to the morning of July 3rd, amplification elements can not be incorporated when a nursing home is located near, municipal sources told EFE.
With the exemptions “there is no free bar” of fines because if the schedules are not fulfilled there will be sanctions, since each act has a temporary strip “taking into account both the rest of the neighbours and the event itself”, sources of the area of Environment and Mobility stressed to EFE.
The suspension of the maximum levels of sound emission is due to “economic and social reasons” that advise him in a timely manner because Pride “is a multitudinous event, attended by more than 1.5 million people annually (…) who make the city (…) a world showcase as a modern open, democratic and respectful city with diversity”, according to the municipal agreement.
