Social Welfare and APESOBE encourage participation in the campaign ‘And you, why do you sign?’ On social networks with the hashtag #YoconlaLS

The Councilor for Social Welfare, Ángela Llorca, was in charge of reading the manifesto today that, on the occasion of the celebration of the National Day of Spanish Sign Languages, is commemorated today throughout Spain.

The event was attended by the mayor, Toni Pérez, representatives of the three municipal groups, public workers and members of APESOBE (Association of Deaf People 'La Marina' Benidorm), led by David Elez, who has also translated simultaneously reading the manifesto into sign language.

"To speak of sign language - Llorca has read - is to speak of the right of an entire group to express themselves and be served in their own language. The councillor has advocated the development of a "National strategy on teaching, use, protection and promotion" of Spanish sign languages ​​that "ensures their learning, knowledge and application both in the field of early care and in the educational system" .

On June 14, 1936, the State Confederation of Deaf People (CNSE) was established, which is why the day to commemorate this day was adopted in 2014. Sign language has more than 100,000 users in our country and has been legally recognized since 2007. In Spain there are two sign languages, Spanish and Catalan, although there are dialect varieties in the different territories of the state.

On the occasion of this event, from early today the main balcony of the Benidorm City Council has a commemorative banner of the National Day of Spanish Sign Languages. Tonight the Castell, El Tossal de la Cala and the town hall will be illuminated in turquoise blue and the City Council and APESOBE encourage citizens to participate in the campaign on social networks 'And you, why do you sign?' With the tag #YoconlaLS.
