In May 2013, freelance photojournalist Raúl Capín, who specializes in reporting on social movements and regularly collaborates with Diario Independiente Digital and Mundo Obrero, was arrested in his home in Madrid. After spending a night in a cell he was released with charges, accused of assaulting a police officer and inciting protestors to likewise assault a group of undercover agents. Capín, described by the right-wing press as an extremist agent provocateur, maintains that he is suffering from persecution and keeps his commitment to working to show the public what the mass media refuse to report. Two years later, his case still open, he gave this interview to Canarias-semanal, with the aim of contributing to a joint campaign set up by a group of alternative media to defend freedom of expression.

On April 10, 2015 the world’s first ever hologram protest took place in Madrid. Citizens must protest as phantoms in order to voice their opinions in public and not be injured, killed, tear-gassed, arrested, tortured or repressed in retaliation. Welcome to the dystopian future present.
Statement by No Somos Delito
#HologramasLibres (FreeHolograms) Nightmare or reality?
The Holograms for Freedom campaign aims to highlight the repression of our rights as free persons, as citizens living in what is supposed to be a democracy. Laws recently passed by congress penalize human rights and freedoms and convert us citizens into a type of hologram whose only function is to obey the wishes of those who have reached the heights of the parliamentary system and who now pass laws without any regard for anything, even the professional opinion of judges. Laws that violate our human rights and exclude us out from political activity.
