Open the milongas of Buenos Aires

I found this announcement posted on Facebook today.  I wish I had seen it days ago so I could have been there to support it.

The Association of Milonga Organizers went to the Minister of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires to solicit approval of protocols for the milongas and economic assistance.  Dancers were invited to participate wearing black clothing, a mask, and holding a white sign with black lettering with one of the following statements:

  • TANGO IS AN INVISIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE
  • ONE YEAR WITHOUT WORK WITH TANGO
  • ECONOMIC SUPPORT FOR TANGO
  • TANGO WANTS TO RETURN TO WALK
  • TANGO IS THE ONLY CULTURAL ACTIVITY PROHIBITED IN THE CITY

Maintain social distancing during the protest.

I had no doubt that the organizers were planning something to draw attention to the plight of the milongas.  Let’s hope that they achieved the desired results that day with the Minister of Culture.
