Civil society organizations and Barcelona’s Ajuntament are joining forces this Saturday to host a march for peace against terror this Saturday afternoon in Passeig de Gràcia.
This is partly a response from some political groups against the minute of silence hosted in Plaça Catalunya the day after the attack, since these groups find some of the attendants at that event (like Mariano Rajoy and the King Felipe VI) responsible for collaborating with countries that promote terrorism. This Saturday’s march is going to be focused on citizen cooperation and solidarity, acknowledgement for the victims of the attacks and defense of the muslim community. This march will be attended by many groups and organizations including representatives from muslim entities, emergency services, taxi drivers, Guàrdia Urbana, Mossos d’Esquadra, city cleaning staff, firefighters, hospital professionals and the residents and professionals from Las Ramblas. The slogan will be “No tinc por” (“I’m not afraid”) in different languages.
The march will be starting at 6pm at Jardinets de Gràcia and finishing at Plaça Catalunya.
