Showing his pleasure that these residents had turned up to take part, the mayor said; “We do what we can to promote equality but there is still a long way to go. Today this event symbolises the path that Torremolinos is following to achieve that equality, especially as it is on a very pleasant day and in an enviable natural environment.”
Councillor García welcomed all who participated in the walk and reminded all that respect and equality between men and women must be recognised 365 days a year.
“Seeing the area full of residents who agree, encourages us to continue in this fight and following sanitary measures due to the pandemic, activities like this drive us to move forward in our purpose,” she explained.
