What is it About?
SCI Catalunya along with other branches is part of the project Challenging Propaganda through Remembrance– which will promote the Remembrance Week that is supposed to happen in the last week of September 2020. This time will be devoted to working around the topics of historical memory, and discovering historical places of Catalunya that should be marked as places of historical value and interest. The project will involve participants into reflecting on the topics of peace, antifascism, common memory- justice-reparation. The activities will be held between 26.09-04.10. 2020. On the first weekend of October there will be a celebration of 100th anniversary of SCI taking place in Catalunya.
The project Challenging Propaganda through Remembrance with its part of Remembrance Weeks in different countries will involve participants into becoming Remembrance Messengers. The activists will be able to relate current events with the past events in order to identify the mechanisms of propaganda on the examples of the II WW and nowadays. There will be a focus on grassroots media and peace organisations and other ways to challenge propaganda with the use of innovative communication methods and tools. The Remembrance Week will bring the reflection of the past, thus it will cast a light on the present events and mechanism of enforcing the concept of “enemy” and propaganda in different societies back in a day and now..
