To the brotherhoods of Cádiz no water

Go ahead, first, that the brotherhoods do not need anyone to defend them. There they are doing every day what they do without expecting anything in return, including in these weeks in which with the churches and brotherhood houses closed there has been no lack of campaigns and social actions (to give an example). And the second, go ahead that this persecution is not new, and that characters like those of today have always been, and with much more danger and capabilities, without the guilds no longer being there. Ask if not for the Vera-Cruz, which has been there since at least 1566; or by Santa María, who do not even know with certainty since when they have been active in this city. And so many that celebrate their birthdays for centuries.

Having said this, some issues have coincided in time that show a worrying indication against the brotherhoods and their members, that despite the fact that they do no harm (the brotherhoods are well above these attacks) it is not advisable to ignore them. In these waters we move. Speaking of Waters, those of Cádiz, what happened a few days ago on the board of directors of the public company and, therefore, at the service of (almost) all people from Cádiz, has gone unnoticed. Or of all, with the exception of the brotherhoods. It turns out that the council was going to approve a measure to reduce the fixed fee "to companies, freelancers and associations that have not been able to make use of the provision of the service due to this exceptional situation." And among those associations it was requested to include the brotherhoods.

So far, everything normal, right? Because the brotherhoods are associations of the city, such as the socio-sanitary, neighborhood, cultural, feminist, carnival, flamenco dance and many others legally registered and registered in the appropriate registries. Well, no. For Aguas de Cádiz this is not the case. Why? Because the brotherhoods are religious associations. And alas! friend, we could get there. The brotherhoods "are related to the Bishopric, which is a large landowner in Cádiz, and to the Catholic Church, which continues to collect subsidies from the personal income tax," said one of the members of the board of directors. So hot dog.

The refusal to include the brotherhoods in the beneficiary entities (remember, for a bonus on the receipt of water to the brotherhood that has a brotherhood house, and that has water inside that brotherhood house, during these months in which the activity of the brotherhoods has been completely paralyzed, Easter included) they wanted to make up in the absence of an economic report that endorsed the proposal, when not a single economic data of the global proposal was presented to the council, and in an absence of the proposed in the agenda. Of course, another much more important question could be addressed than the brotherhoods that was not on the agenda either: requests from environmental groups so that the birds that are migrating can drink from the fountains of the city.

In this scenario the guilds usually (and almost always in silence) move, which apparently must do a lot of harm to society and a lot of damage to the city. In a society that calls for prisoners to be released from prisons due to the coronavirus, which invites terrorists to give lectures, which openly supports people convicted by the courts, the brotherhoods are denied rights that are made available to other people legal.

And if you have to lie along the way, then you lie. Out of ignorance, or with total knowledge to confuse staff. As the counselor of Aguas de Cádiz when saying that they are from the Bishopric (as if the Bishopric paid something to the brotherhoods, and not the other way around, with the pains that it leaves in the piggy bank every time a statute has to be changed, to present some accounts or ring the bell of the Women's Hospital so that Emilio Bienvenido can attend to some management, without charging him, of course). Or like that other one that releases by the bile that the brotherhoods are going to pass the money of the VAT of the official race to the subscribers of the chairs, when the brotherhoods have announced from the beginning that they would assume the VAT (against nature, by the way, because VAT has to be faced by the consumer) or that they are "evading" money to the Treasury, when they are exercising their right, like everyone else's, to consult with the Treasury whether or not to pay the tax, and in what percentage. That for that there are up to two provisions of the Tax Agency itself establishing that there is no VAT to declare for the official degree. Well, nothing. To point out, isolate or persecute the brotherhoods in this liberal, modern and progressive Cádiz. And if you have to lie, you lie.

To the brotherhoods or water, some think. Poor ignoramuses who do not know that the brotherhoods have been swimming through thick and thin not now, but since its foundation, both outside and inside the Church. And there they are, with their strength, with their flaws and their strengths. And with your taxes. And paying 100% of water bills, so they can take advantage of the birds that are migrating
