We are volunteers who want to protect Barcelona’s and citizens and visitors from becoming victims of theft.
We want to protect people through education of what to do when they experience or witness a theft, robbery, or attack. We create awareness of their rights and the law, and how it can protect or harm them.
We want to bring the power to the people. We want to make people strong, educated and trained to be able to tackle situations of theft and intimidation. We want to make people aware that in a group they can protect themselves and the victims of the situations.
We want people to feel confident about their own safety and security at all times, during the day and night.
The administration is either completely unaware or playing blind to this issues. We are collecting data of a theft, robbery, or attack while keeping victims anonymous. Different types of incidents include specifics such as neighborhoods, age, nationality, time of the day, etc. to present the issue to the authorities.
Attention from Authority and Media
We will generate campaigns through our data, activism, and ground presence to promote the issue on local, national and international media. Peaceful actions such as protests and holding events that have high turnouts will also help us get close to this objective.
Lobbying for Change in Law and Administration
The biggest issue in this situation is the limitation of law and inability of administration. The law looks at these issues in monetary value and not in terms of the psychological impact. We need to push for law to cover more holistically at the national level. That will require a continuous effort.
