SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Feb. 10 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The territorial director of Education of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Federico Delgado, confirmed this Thursday that the eviction of the CEIP Isaac de Vega de Granadilla has originated from an attempt to boycott the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 among the children 5 and 11 years old.
In a statement released by his department, he has indicated that a telephone call was received early in the morning at the center with a “threat” that a bomb would be planted if the vaccination was carried out.
For this reason, and in a device organized by the Civil Guard, the 430 students of the school were transferred to a nearby school to maintain “security and tranquility” and once the agents certified that there was no artifact, the students resumed their activity .
From the Government of the Canary Islands, Delgado has pointed out, they carry out a “resounding condemnation” of an “unjustified action” that has altered the life of the educational center because it “breaks” the state of mind and produces “nervousness and anxiety”.
The STEC union has also shown its “strong condemnation and rejection” of the “serious threats” suffered by certain Canarian educational centers in relation to pediatric vaccination of COVID-19.
Thus, in the face of the “irrational” denialist positions, from the STEC-IC they recall that the decision to vaccinate the students or not is a decision that only concerns their families and that must be respected, in one way or another.
“Pediatric vaccination is not mandatory in any way, as families must decide freely on the matter and not under threat and coercion, as an anti-democratic minority wants to impose,” they indicate.
From the union they urge the Ministry of Education and the State Security Forces and Bodies to act “with maximum speed and forcefulness” in order to clarify the facts indicated and guarantee the safety of the educational communities subject to intimidation.
