He accused organisers of a concert to be held in the Tabán district of the capital on Sunday of showing “zero interest” in the park’s environment, and he appealed to concert-goers to take care of the area.

Pointing to the pollution, noise and stress felt by animals, he said fireworks should be replaced by light shows using new technologies.
