The Mossos d’Esquadra have offered protection to the family of Canet de Mar (Barcelona) who have suffered threats on social networks after having succeeded in getting justice to impose the precautionary measure that their daughter receives at least 25% of classes in Spanish . The regional police have established a “non-invasive surveillance” in the surroundings of the public school Turó del Drac, where the minor attends infant education. Although the environment in the school is calm and the parents ask for peace of mind, the police force tries to avoid any possible act of harassment to the affected family.

The surveillance focuses, above all, on “the entry and exit times” of the students and was agreed last Friday in a meeting between the Mossos and the Barcelona Prosecutor’s Office, as police and judicial sources have confirmed to EL PAÍS. “The family was offered protection in case a tense situation arose,” explain judicial sources familiar with the encounter. The meeting coincided with the celebration of a demonstration in support of linguistic immersion that brought together, in a square near the school, some 250 people, including pro-independence politicians.

The police action takes place within the framework of the investigation that the Prosecutor’s Office keeps open for an alleged crime of incitement to hatred and discrimination. The association Hablamos Español and Vox filed complaints after the publication, on Twitter, of threatening comments towards the family. “I am about to stone this child’s house. Let them go outside of Catalonia ”, wrote a former professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, ​​Jaume Fàbrega, who later retracted (half) saying that it was a metaphorical expression. The virtual siege was joined by a moved Very active independentist in networks, Albert Donaire, who invited the student to be isolated. “This child has to find himself alone in class. In Spanish hours, the other children should go out ”.

In an open letter released on Monday, parents have asked to remain anonymous and have explained their feelings about the threats, which for now have been limited to social networks and have not occurred directly in the school environment. “Feeling the hatred, the intimidation, the threats, the pointing on one’s own skin, is very hard. We have wanted to cry many times ”, says the letter, in which they also appreciate the support shown by many parents of Turó del Drac, a center that has been dragged into the Catalan battlefield at school.

Canet’s is one of the more than 80 families that, in recent years and according to the Generalitat, have succeeded in getting justice to recognize the right of their children to receive at least 25% of classes in Spanish. In Canet’s case, it is a precautionary measure, pending judgment. In addition to the threats to the family, the case has jumped to the forefront of today because it is the first decision that comes after the judgment of the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) that sets a minimum has been declared final. 25% of hours in Spanish for the whole of the Catalan educational system and which threatens to overturn the linguistic immersion model defended by the Government.
