Protest over incorrect accessibility at the Cultural Center of Zakynthos

Letter with the protest of the Association of People with Disabilities of Zakynthos "THE POPOLARS" on the non-compliance with accessibility standards of the Spiritual Center of Zakynthos was sent by E.S.A. to the mayor of Zakynthos N. Aretakis.

The Cultural Center of Zakynthos, which plays an important role in the cultural life of the island, as cultural events are organized in this area, but the meetings of the Municipal Councils of the Municipality of Zakynthos are held, does not meet the accessibility standards, so people with disabilities cannot enter the area freely and unhindered. Also, due to the fact that we are just around the corner of the new tourist season, the inibility of this building will result in tourists or visitors with disabilities visiting the island not being able to enter the building of the Spiritual Center autonomously. Meanwhile, the Union has been waiting since last year, as the previous letter it had sent is timed.

In addition, it is necessary to install a lift with a platform in order to serve all persons with disabilities (with manual wheelchairs and electronics) and not to install an armchair, because this does not solve the problem of accessibility of this building.
