Barcelona in Solidarity with March For Our Lives

At Placa Catalunya, Barcelona
On 24th March 2018 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Description

ENG ------- ESP

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by American students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida on February 14, 2018, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard nationally and globally.

On March 24 more than 400 solidarity actions will be happening across the US and worldwide. In Barcelona, we will be rallying in Placa Catalunya in solidarity with the kids and families of March For Our Lives.

Americans abroad feel anguish for our family and friends whose lives are in daily danger from gun violence. Compared to other high-income countries, American children age 5-14 are 14 times more likely to be killed with guns; and American adolescents and young adults age 15-24 are 23 times more likely to be killed with guns. Some of us are students who fear returning to school in the US or who want to show solidarity with students in the US. Some of us are teachers who fear returning to work in American schools where “active shooter” drills are now a routine part of students' schooldays. Americans abroad have the right to vote in US elections and to call on the US government to enact sensible gun control laws.

On 24th March we will share stories of hope, and express support to the leaders for change in the United States and to the young voices of America. Stand with us in Barcelona so collective and global voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard. Calling all ex-pats, abroad students, and concerned allies alike- Spread the word!

March For Our Lives está creado, inspirado y liderado por estudiantes estadounidenses de todo el país que no arriesgarán más sus vidas esperando a que alguien más tome medidas para detener la epidemia de tiroteos masivos que se ha vuelto demasiado familiar. En la trágica estela de las diecisiete vidas brutalmente truncadas en Florida el 14 de febrero de 2018, la clase política dice que ahora no es el momento de hablar sobre las armas de fuego. March For Our Lives cree que el momento es AHORA.

El 24 de marzo, la niñez, juventud y familias de March For Our Lives tomarán las calles de Washington, DC para exigir que sus vidas y su seguridad se conviertan en una prioridad. Las voces colectivas del movimiento March For Our Lives se escucharán a nivel nacional y mundial.

El 24 de marzo se realizarán más de 400 acciones de solidaridad en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo. En Barcelona, ​​nos uniremos en Plaza Catalunya en solidaridad con los y las jóvenes y las familias de March For Our Lives.

Las personas de origen estadounidense en el extranjero sentimos angustia por nuestras familias y amistades cuyas vidas están en peligro diario a causa de la violencia armada. En comparación con otros países de altos ingresos, la niñez y adolescencia estadounidense de entre 5 y 14 años tienen 14 veces más probabilidades de sufrir un asesinato con arma de fuego; y la adolescencia y juventud estadounidense de entre 15 y 24 años tienen 23 veces más probabilidades de ser asesinados con armas de fuego. Una parte de los y las integrantes de Women’s March somos estudiantes que tememos regresar a la escuela en los Estados Unidos o que queremos mostrar solidaridad con la comunidad de estudiantes en los Estados Unidos. Otra parte del colectivo de Women’s March pertenecemos al sector educativo y tememos volver a trabajar en las escuelas estadounidenses donde los simulacros de "tiradores activos" son ahora una rutina en la vida diaria de la niñez y la juventud. Las personas de origen estadounidense en el extranjero tenemos derecho a votar en las elecciones de los EE. UU. y pedirle al gobierno que promulgue leyes sensatas de control de armas.

El 24 de marzo compartiremos historias de esperanza y daremos nuestro apoyo a las personas líderes por el cambio en los Estados Unidos y a las jóvenes voces de Estados Unidos. Únete a nosotros en Barcelona para que se escuchen las voces colectivas y globales del movimiento March For Our Lives. Llamamos a todo el mundo y diferentes colectivos: personas inmigrantes, estudiantes en el extranjero y aliados interesados ​​por igual- ¡Difundamos la palabra!

concerned allies alike- Spread the word!
