More than 3,000 people in Barcelona claim “zero tolerance” for LGTBIphobic attacks

More than 3,000 people have gathered this Thursday in Barcelona to ask for “zero tolerance” against the LGBTIphobic violence that has been experienced in recent weeks in Catalonia and the rest of the State. The protest has been promoted by the platform of LGTBI entities of Catalonia and Pride Barcelona to make a “common front” for the first time in 44 years, when the group took to the streets after the Franco regime against discrimination.

In a manifesto, the organizers have called for a “united outcry against hatred.” The organizers have warned with “consternation” of an “increase in LGTBIphobic violence in Barcelona, ​​Catalonia and Spain” and have argued that the homophobic murder of young Samuel in A Coruña has been “the last straw”.

Politicians such as the Minister for Equality and Feminisms, Tània Verge; the Minister for the Interior, Joan Ignasi Elena; the Minister for Business and Labor, Roger Torrent; or the first deputy mayor of Barcelona, ​​Jaume Collboni.
