OK técnico a la Estrategia para la Memoria Histórica en Canarias

The Technical Commission for Historical Memory has unanimously approved the Strategy for the Historical Memory of the Canary Islands, a document whose objective is to guarantee the recognition and moral reparation of the Canarian victims of the civil war and the Franco dictatorship. The aforementioned commission is a collegiate body of a technical, advisory and advisory nature to the Government of the Canary Islands chaired by the Minister of Public Administration, Justice and Security, Julio Pérez.

The Strategy for the Historical Memory of the Canary Islands is the result of highly participatory work, in which an attempt has been made to gather the position and opinions of experts, memorialist associations, public institutions and society in general. Thus, more than 400 people responded to the questionnaire published on the Canary Islands Government’s Citizen Participation Portal in one of the most numerous participatory processes in recent years.

Three major strategic objectives have been established, which constitute the aims to be pursued in this document.

In the first place, to promote research, the construction of a common story and the dissemination of facts regarding historical memory. Secondly, to guarantee the recognition and dignity of the victims of the civil war and the Franco regime and thirdly, to ensure institutional support for the defense of the historical-democratic memory.

Seven strategic lines, sixteen lines of action and up to a total of 35 projects hang from these three major objectives, all of them described with identification of their compliance indicators, financing forecast, expected results and planning or schedule of their development.

For the Deputy Minister of Justice of the Government of the Canary Islands, Carla Vallejo, “it is not a strategy for confrontation”, but for recognition and reparation, which offers answers to claims long demanded by citizens and which turn out to be of pure material justice.

Among them, the deputy minister cites the exhumation of the graves, dignity of the victims, investigation of the reality of abducted minors, approval of the catalog of Francoist vestiges, preparation of the map of spaces and places of memory.

Many of these actions are already underway and some are at an advanced stage of development, points out the Ministry, which specifies that this strategy is intended to coordinate and guarantee the successful completion of all projects, constituting the roadmap for the Report Democratic in the Canary Islands.

Its elaboration is based on the obligation contained in the Law of Historical Memory of the Canary Islands and of recognition and moral reparation of the Canarian victims of the civil war and the Franco dictatorship.

Together with the counselor Julio Pérez and the deputy counselor Carla Vallejo, on behalf of the Ministry of Public Administrations, Justice and Security, the General Director of Relations with the Administration of Justice, Mónica Ceballos, and the head of the Mediation Section of this General Directorate, Elisa Santiago, among others.
