Violent incidents with political motivation in favour of the unity of Spain registered in the Catalan Countries

Violent incidents against Catalan citizens are occurring in great numbers in our country. 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- 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 incidents, with the aim of incorporating those that took place after December the 11th 2017, until the present day. 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

–        Google Maps geolocation, if you have it

–        Link to website or social network that shows or explains the incident

–        Graphic material: photos, videos

We have based the first phase on the chronology of violent incidents which we endured in Catalonia in the last quarter of 2017, compiled by Jordi Borràs 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.
