Looking for

  • Translation

    We want to translate all the information we receive from other parts of the world about this topic: the use of rubber bullets. For this we need of collaboration. Similarly, we want to disseminate as widely as possible all the documents that we have produced and still produce so that these weapons will be never used anymore.

  • Survey

    We are preparing a working group to open an investigation about other cases of victims for rubber bullets. We know that there are many people who remain anonymous and we want to bring them up to the light by exposing their experiences and sufferings. Can you give us a hand?

Stop Bales de Goma

Stop Bales de Goma
The Association Stop Bales de Goma (“Stop Rubber Bullets”) was founded in 2010 and is made up of victims of differing severity who have suffered damages by the impact of rubber projectiles fired by Catalan Police “Mossos d'Esquadra”, and other individuals, associations and social movements who sympathize with the cause. The ultimate goal of the association is a ban on the use of such weapons by the various police forces in Spain.

Les bales de goma a Estrasburg

In 2001, Carles Guillot lost an eye due to the impact of a rubber bullet fired during an eviction in Gracia district, in Barcelona.

Even though the policeman responsible of the shooting was identified, the case has been concluded by the court after the preliminary investigation. After 11 years and 2 months of lawsuits (from the High Court to the Supreme Court and finally to the Constitutional Court), the Spanish justice has refused any sort of compensation for it.

We ask that the practice of ignoring the victims of police violence, granting complete impunity to the security forces, be no longer the norm that prevails in Catalonia and the rest of the Spanish state.

That's why we decided to take the case to the European Court of Human Rights, in order to prevent other similar violations of fundamental rights.

Main features

Lawyers Jaume Asens and Anaïs Franquesa will bring the case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, accusing Spain of violation of article 6.1 (right to a fair trial within a reasonable time) and 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment ) of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

Why this is important

This project is aimed at all those people aware of human rights and the injustice represented by the lack in application of the fundamental human rights, here and around the world.

It’s also aimed at all the people who believe that in a democratic state there must be no impunity for police.

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

The main target of this project is to bring the suit to the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Hopefully, succeeding in the case will enable Spanish judges and prosecutors to investigate in depth the charges against the security forces, avoiding in that way other cases of long proceedings as the ones currently involving the victims of police violence.

Additionally, a case of this kind can generate jurisprudence that might be useful for any citizen in the European Union.
