The victims of the 11M held separate acts of homage to the eighth anniversary of the slaughter, which coincided with the protest of the UGT and CCOO against President Rajoy’s labor reform.
The Association of Victims of Terrorism (AVT) organized this act of remembrance ofthe attacks in Madrid, attended by about 200 people to remember those killed in the Wood Memorial in El Retiro Park in Madrid.
Among the attendants were Minister of Justice, Secretary of State for Security, Ignacio Ulloa, Mayor of Madrid, Ana Botella, the government delegate in Madrid, Cristina Cifuentes, Secretary General of Prisons, Angel Yuste and UPyD representatives.
The president of the AVT, Angeles Pedraza, said his organization will not get tired of repeating that “the M11 is not a done deal” because “there are many details to be clarified.” “We remember him every year, the M11 is an open case and now more than ever,” she said of the “worst attack in the history of Spain.”
“This March 11, 2012 is a day to claim and fight for truth, dignity, memory and justice for victims of terrorism. But don’t forget that dignity to the victims of terrorism is not only to do homage and recognition. To dignify victims we must do justice,” said Pedraza.
