Lúgaro to close her campaign Saturday

By on November 1, 2016

lugaroSAN JUAN – Independent gubernatorial candidate Alexandra Lúgaro announced she will hold her campaign closure Saturday, Nov. 5, with a large event on Cerra Street in Santurce.

The event will begin at 3 p.m. and will include transportation from Mayagüez, Yauco, Ponce, Caguas, Aguadilla, Hatillo, Dorado, Bayamón, Fajardo, Luquillo, Río Grande, Canóvanas, Carolina and San Juan. Bus tickets must be purchased in advance at a cost of $9, Lúgaro says on her Facebook page.

The event is being promoted with a video showing several murals made throughout the Santurce es Ley event with a message that asks: “How do you want to be remembered? Like the cowards who for fear of losing never won and ended up accepting a lesser evil? Or like the brave who came to exercise their will and changed everything? Let’s go out! #SinMiedo [#NoFear].” 

Santurce es Ley objects use of murals for political promotion

Meanwhile, the Santurce es Ley group objected to the use of the murals of their event for a video of political advocacy because the images were used “without the consent of the artists or the event that organized and created with great effort a district dedicated to art which, we believe has helped the country positively.

“Sometimes, when they have used the images of any piece in the media it has been directly tied to the promotion of these artists or just paying for the right to use their work in advertising. Public art is public, but copyright must be respected and recognized. Public art cannot be used for commercial or political interests without prior authorization,” the organization expressed through its Facebook account.

The group explained that it isn’t about “a letter against the Lúgaro candidate,” but a “reminder to all politicians or publicists who wants to hitch a ride through our effort.”
