Short Update: Spanish NGO publishes report on racism and xenophobia during Spain’s state of alarm

FT Admin - June 9, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Extended police powers, Rule of Law

Rights International Spain has published a report, ‘Covid-19 health crisis: racism and xenophobia during the state of alarm in Spain’ which documents racist incidents, profiling, police brutality and institutional discriminatory practices that have taken place during the confinement under the state of alarm. 

The report was requested by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). The report gathers more than 70 racist incidents and institutional discriminatory practices that have taken place during the confinement under the state of alarm in Spain. This shows the urgent need to take concrete measures to address structural changes and to put an end to racial inequality.  

The report includes a number of recommendations to reconstruct a more inclusive, solidary, stronger and more equal society.
