The Minister of Public Space Clara Muzzio inaugurated a mural vandalizing trees.
In a red circle are the trees vandalized by Minister Clara Muzzio herself, “Do what i say… but not what I do”.
The city government has just inaugurated a mural in Salguero and Seguí, a work that not only intervenes with walls and benches but also includes painting the trees in that area. Doesn’t it seem contradictory to you that it is the officials themselves who endorse and are happy with such a serious intervention?
In a City where complaints about pruning and illegal extractions are daily and even where there is a precautionary measure since 2017 by Judge Scheibler that forces the communes to explain each intervention in a tree through reports; it is ironic and sad that this happens.
It is curious to think that with the constant claim of neighbors for the lack of green spaces and with the compulsive business policy of Larreta for the sale of public land, the Ministry of Public Space and Urban Hygiene finances and authorizes that even the real trees something that is strictly prohibited.
He cited Article 9 of Law 3263 Article 9 explicitly says that it is prohibited:«Damage them totally or partially by injuring their anatomy or physiology, through mechanical wounds, burning their tissues with fire, fixing foreign elements, introducing or throwing phytotoxic substances on the ground or in their tissues, or painting the stems or branches with lime , varnish or paints. “
When color marketing involves mistreatment of the reservoir of our flora, we must be more aware of how we treat the environment and why we have a Ministry of Public Space and Urban Hygiene.
