Description:
The idea behind the action 14J : Portem el CIE al centre, was to call attention to the immigrant detention centres (CIEs), often located far from the city centre and out of public sight, by reconstructing a centre of these characteristics in the Plaça dels Angels (Barcelona's cultural epicentre).
This reconstruction demonstrates what a CIE is, both on the structural and the operational levels, in its day to day running, where human rights breaches are systematic; internment for administrative reasons, regulation of inmates' daily lives, inhumane treatment and violence against inmates, among other abuses.
