The investigator of the Cádiz Explosion and promoter of the commemorative events of the catastrophe that took place in 1947, José Antonio Aparicio Florido, has presented a letter to the mayor of Cádiz, Bruno García, requesting the repeal of the change of name of the Plaza de Saint Severian.

The initial proposal, which was brought before the Special Gazetteer Commission to change the name of the square to “Víctimas de la Explosión de Cádiz”, has found opposition in local media publications, where residents expressed their rejection of said modification. .

The researcher expressed in his communication, sent to Cadiz Portalthat “despite my past continuous efforts to dedicate a public road in the city of Cádiz to the memory of the victims of the Cádiz Explosion of 1947 and having been brought yesterday to the Special Gazetteer Commission the proposal of the changing the signage of the Plaza de San Severiano to the name Víctimas de la Explosión de Cádiz, I have been able to read in some local media, to my surprise and dismay, the social rejection that this represents for the residents of the area affected by the modification”.

Given the news and statements from the residents of the area, Aparicio Florido finds “more than enough reasons to abandon the proposal and thereby prevent the memory of the victims of the Explosion from being injured or involved in any type of controversy now and in the future.” the future”. In his letter, he requests the mayor to address the neighbors’ complaints and desist from any other alternative that could lead to a similar conflict.

The final decision on changing the name of the square remains in the hands of the municipal authorities, who will have to weigh the requests of the researcher, the opinions of the citizens and the wishes of the Government Team.
