It should be remembered that Puerto Rellena or Puerto Resistencia is one of the emblematic places of unemployment national in the capital of Valle del Cauca. There a sculpture of an arm was built with the fist raised and holding a sign with the word “Resist”.

“That event did not request permission, nor did it obtain permission from the Cali Mayor’s Office. It was an event that they did in the framework of his resistance, let’s say behind the back of the Administration “, affirmed the Undersecretary of Inspection, Surveillance and Control of the Mayor’s Office of Cali, Jimmy Dranguet

The official stated that the Mayor’s Office was present at the site to verify that there will be no public order problems and that it was decided not to suspend the concert to avoid confrontations with the attendees.
