Muslims protest against terror near Barcelona memorial

A group of Muslim protesters gathered on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas on Saturday (August 19) to distance themselves from the ideology of Islamist extremism.

“We are also victims because we are hurt by what happened, but secondly, we are also hurt because people are generalising, they are looking negatively at us, are insulting us in the streets,” said Aziz Cetuani Farcho, a Moroccan woman living in Catalonia.

“It could have happened to me too,” said Abdel Karim, a Moroccan man living in Catalonia.

“I am Muslim, I am a person who does not harm anybody. I pay my taxes and thanks to this country I can get what I want. I am not a violent person. I feel so sorry for what happened to these people who are people just like me.”

The group held their demonstration near the site of a memorial to the Barcelona van attack victims.

Police cars were visible in the area, to prevent any further attacks.
