MADRID (ACI Prensa) - Fue en el pleno de la Junta Municipal del  pasado 18 de septiembre cuando se aprobo retirar la talla, con el voto del PSOE y de Ahora Madrid, partido afin a Podemos y al que pertenece la alcaldesa de Madrid, Manuela Carmena.

Alegan que les preocupa que "desde el area de Medio ambiente no se hayan tenido en cuenta el impacto ambiental que la instalacion de esta talla religiosa en el Parque Forestal de Valdebebas y sus posteriores romerias puedan significar para el Parque, por los posibles danos y destrozos que se producen en aglomeraciones tumultuosas, asi como la suciedad generada".

Sin embargo, los vecinos de la zona se han movilizado recogiendo firmas para evitar que esta imagen de la Virgen se retire. Actualmente cuentan con el apoyo de mas de 21 mil personas.

En la recogida de firmas se precisa que esta escultura de la Virgen es "una verdadera obra de arte que suma valor artistico, popular y sentimental al Parque, recordando las antiguas romerias que se hacian antano". "Esta Virgen representa muchas cosas para muchos. Es un grito de libertad", precisan.

La talla de la Virgen del Abrazo, que representa a Maria abrazada a su hijo Jesus, se realizo con los permisos correspondientes y aprovechando el tronco de un arbol ya talado.

Si finalmente se retirara la talla, se llevaria a la parroquia de Carcavas, y aunque el parroco asegura que la recibiria con mucha ilusion, también declaro que prefiere que se quede donde esta actualmente.
