The movement against intolerance has presented today its 2012 Raxen report. Racism, xenophobia, antisemitism, Islamophobia, neo-fascism, homophobia and other forms of expression associated with intolerance through deeds. On the other hand, in Badajoz the anti-racial, anti-fascist bloc (Bloque antiracist Antifascista) has been established.

 

A report of the movement against intolerance warns against the existence of racist groups in all the autonomous communities - more than 1,500 xenophobic internet sites, dozens of concerts of neo-fascist music and more than 10,000 sites of the extreme right. In Spain, 4,000 violent incidents motivated by discrimination and racism occur each year.
