For the restitution of Javier Fuentes Feo, director of CENDEAC, and for a plural and public culture and of quality management.

The citizens who sign this manifest want to express our profound rejection against the cessation of Javier Fuentes Feo, director CENDEAC after the congress “Spain without (a) franco”. This decision seems totally inadequate considering the huge success of the congress, besides the management model that the centre had been developing so far.

In the context of a deep economic crisis, with a reduction of 85% of its budget compared to previous years, under the leadership of Javier Fuentes Feo, CENDEAC has developed and consolidated cultural projects of national and international prestige. Projects like “Fisuras Fílmicas”, “D. Nuevo Ensayo”, “Conversations about the photo book” or “Memorias Celuloides” show how during his four years at the centre he has conducted a management characterized by its plurality, austerity and quality. An independent management which involved numerous student associations, cultural, platforms, film libraries, universities and other institutions, which have been developed in a continuous dialogue with citizens.

So, we make public our discomfort with this type of unilateral decisions that attack the model of public and cultural management that we consider desirable for our society.
