Garraf United Against Racism and Xenophobia
In the evening on May 27, some 1.500 people in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Garraf) took part in a demonstration against racism, organized by Unitat contra el feixisme i el racisme al Garraf. Political parties, groups of immigrants and native inhabitants united with chants like “In Vilanova we are all immigrants (A Vilanova tots som immigrants)”. After the recent municipal elections, which in Catalonia were marked by xenophobic tendencies, Garraf can celebrate that in this comarca, Plataforma per Catalunya did not win representation in any town council.
