The former Model Prison is to play host to the 2nd Meeting of the Network of Cities against Francoist Impunity, on 22 January, one day after its symbolic opening to the public.
Municipalist initiatives for demanding truth, justice and reparations for Francoist crimes are to be analysed and debated throughout a day event that the Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, will be officially opening.
The event will notably include special participation from María Servini, the judge behind the criminal proceedings opened in Argentina against Francoism. There will also be a table of experiences for sharing the work against impunity being carried out in Madrid, Pamplona, Vitoria and Barcelona.
You can consult the rest of the day’s programme here. The event will be concluded by the three sisters of Salvador Puig Antich, the anarchist executed at the Model Prison on Franco’s orders.
The Network of Cities against Francoist Impunity was set up in October 2016 as a tool for coordinating the necessary actions for promoting proceedings against Francoist crimes.
The network is made up of cities that include Madrid, Zaragoza, Corunya, Pamplona, Vitoria, Cadiz and Barcelona, which joined the criminal proceedings started at Court Nº 1 in Buenos Aires, and which has initiated further criminal proceedings against the aerial bombings carried out by the Italian air force in 1936 and 1937, and against Carlos Rey González, the acting lawyer who drafted and signed Puig Antich’s death sentence.
