Geolocation of Incidents by Spanish Nationalists in the Catalans Countries
Incidents against Catalan citizens are occurring in great numbers in our countries. While the independence movement for the Republic is characterised by active non-violent resistance, exerted through demonstrations, mobilisations and initiatives of a positive and civic nature, the response by the Spanish side has been -and continues to be- (in certain cases) threats, insults, campaigns of discredit, acts of vandalism and assaults, throwing of objects, physical and verbal attacks, and even gun shots.
We have developed a map to geographically locate the incidents and make a record of the visual evidence of these serious actions and, given the continuity of the violents incidents, with the aim of incorporating those that took place after September the 11th 2017, until the present day, and some of the precedents from the Dades Base on Catalanophoby (B.D.C.). That is why we ask for your collaboration to complete the map. You can send us a message to our e-mail ([email protected]) with the data of the incident and the location:
- Description of the incident*
- Town and post code
- Address/location of the incident
- InstaMaps geolocation, if you have it
- Link to website or social network that shows or explains the incident
- Graphic material: photos, videos
- Anti-catalanist demonstrations
- Attack on physical integrity
- Intimidation and threats
- Other type of incident
- Sabotage of a public event
- Vandalism against organisations
- Vandalism against private individuals
Here you have the map. You can zoom in and click on the various spots, the card that pops up contains the data and images that we have been able to collect.
We have based the first phase on the chronology of incidents which we endured in Catalonia in the last quarter of 2017, compiled by Jordi Borràs (@jordiborras) within the Mèdia.CAT Yearbook annex (developed by the Group of Journalists Ramon Barnils). By transferring the data into the map that we present to you, the situation still takes on a more relevant dimension: the magnitude of the situation we are putting up with clearly shows that we continue to endure it repeatedly.
If you detect any errors in the localisation or the data included on the map, we would be grateful if you could contact us by e-mail ([email protected]) so we can correct them. Thanks for your collaboration.
