The City Council shows its rejection of violence against women

The SIAD organizes a personal defense course for women on Sunday

Salou. Costa Dorada. 26 November 2018.
Salou has demonstrated its rejection of violence against women through a series of events on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Among these, there is a Personal Defense workshop against male violence. This initiative, organized by the Women's Information and Advice Service (SIAD) of the City Council, is part of the Second Local Equality Plan addressed to the citizens of 2015-2019 and aims to promote gender equality and raise society's awareness to reduce the acts of macho violence.
As the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women was on Sunday 25, the commemorative acts were moved to Friday, November 23. At 5:00 pm, the manifesto was read and a presentation was made by the health and welfare coach Minerva Castillo, in the Costa Daurada Room of the Civic Center. The mayor, Pere Granados, stressed that "it is important to advance in education in values, to work every day to correct violent behavior, not only the physical ones that are more evident, but also the psychological ones that also damage the emotional and personal integrity" .
The sports facilities hung slogans on the canvases of "Salou says no to macho violence," and sports clubs held a minute of silence as a sign of mourning for the sexist murders of 2018.
Councilor for Welfare and Social Services, Estela Baeza, explained that "one more year, it is necessary to join the celebration of this day, unfortunately sexist violence is a scourge against which we must fight as an institution and as a society, not only 25 It is precisely for this reason that transversal actions are suitable to raise awareness and raise awareness in the society of our municipality.This year the Department of Sports and sports entities join the fight against gender violence, which we value as very positive ".
In addition, next Sunday, December 2, the SIAD will also offer a personal defense course for women, at the Pavelló Center, in the Sala Jardí, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., by coach Oscar Prieto. In order to attend this workshop it will be necessary to make a prior registration in the SIAD through the email [email protected] or by calling 977 30 92 06. The main objectives are to make known the fundamental principles of self-defense, uses and means of the aggressor and its basic "modus operandi", and the uses and basic means of self-defense. It also allows updating and specializing attendees on basic techniques of personal defense against assaults and threats with weapons.
