Autonomy Statue Removed
The statue of Autonomy has been removed from the Autonomy Square. Surely symbolical of the state Madeira has reached, so heavily indebted that it only has Autonomy in name and in Jardim's propaganda.
Symbolic also that it is being removed as part of a project which includes the building of a contested project for a new shipping dock in Funchal harbour, which is being financed with the money received for reconstruction following the 20th of February flash floods.
The docking facility is another pork-barrel project to fill the pockets of a handfull of constructors. Experts say that due to its exposure to the open seas it may only be operational half the time.
