A new anti-repression conference organised by Edinburgh in Protest, in collaboration with Spanish Workers in Edinburgh, is taking place on the 19th and 20th of March in Edinburgh. The weekend’s programme includes documentaries, talks, debates and concerts. The aim of this event is to create a space for reflection and an open discussion on institutional and police violence.
The event will shed some light on recent cases of institutional violence that have occurred in Spain and Scotland. These crimes, according to the conference organisers, are often brushed under the carpet or overlooked. all the events in the conference are free, except for the concert. Part of the money raised at the concert will be sent to the family of Sheku Bayoh, a recent victim of institutional repression in Scotland.
