The mayor of Lima, Rafael López Aliaga, instituted the Family Day in the capital of Peru and repealed a regulation approved by the previous government that imposed gender ideology, in a transversal way, to all programs and services of the municipality.
Ordinance 2568, approved unanimously by the Metropolitan Council, establishes the celebration of Family Day on the second Sunday of September of each year with the purpose of strengthening, protecting and valuing “the families of Lima as the first spaces for the transmission of values”.
It determines that the municipality offers during the whole second week of September special campaigns of attention, protection and assistance services for the families of the metropolitan region, especially for those in a situation of greater vulnerability.
In addition, it will encourage the realization of recreational and cultural events for family gatherings and the development of talks, forums, round tables and conferences that value the role of this community founded on marriage.
Closing the doors to ‘gender’
In the same ordinance, in the complementary provisions, Ordinance 2355-2021, published on June 14, 2021, in the government of Mayor Jorge Muñoz Wells, which institutionalized “the mainstreaming of the gender approach in the policies, public services and institutional management of the Municipality of Lima”, is repealed.
Ordinance 2568 was approved in the Metropolitan Municipal Council last September 15, and was mentioned by López Aliaga in the framework of the visit of José Antonio Kast, president of Political Network for Values, to Lima.
“Here in Lima (the previous administration) paid a consultancy of more than 1 million dollars to change the entire municipal structure based on gender ideology […] which does so much damage to the family and abuses children. This is an ordinance approved unanimously by the councilors, independent of their party, I ask for applause for them; we are rescuing basic anthropology, it is not a matter of faith or religion”, he affirmed.
