For the same issue, the Colorado deputy Felipe Schipani sent a note to the Dean of Architecture, Marcelo Danza, to remove the poster that calls for voting Yes. “The university belongs to everyone, regardless of what each one votes for. We hope that the dean in defense of secularism enforces the Constitution and orders the withdrawal”, said the representative.
A few days ago a poster was removed from the Faculty of Law, with the legend: “At the university we vote yes”. The fact merited a tweet from the Minister of Education and Culture, Pablo da Silveira. “A cartel that cancels and excludes. It leaves out all those linked to UdelaR who are not in favor of the Yes. And it ignores through language all the other universities that exist in the country, including that other public university, and from the interior, which is UTEC. A pity”, he wrote then.
