translated from Spanish: Two years after the tragedy: Barcelona remembers the Las Ramblas attack

Relatives and representatives of the administrations participated in the institutional event, held in front of the monument to the victims in Las Ramblas, with the presence of the President of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, the minist Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and the mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau.
In the brief, sober, emotional and without political slogans, some relatives participated in the floral offering with T-shirts with the motto “we demand the truth”, “we have the right to the truth”, while other attendees branded a banner on which one could read “The Islam strongly condemns the murder of innocent people.”
An hour and a half after this official event, the Catalan Association of Victims of Terrorist Organizations (ACVOT) has held a parallel event, at the beginning of Las Ramblas, in which it has denounced the “forgotten” and “marginality” of some victims and has claimed ” dignity and justice.”
On Twitter, acting President of Government, Pedro Sánchez, sent his “memory and solidarity” to the victims and their families of the Barcelona and Cambrils attacks and has assured that from the Executive they will remain “firm” in the fight against terrorism ” defending democracy.”
