Leftist Party Opposed to any Easter Activities at Schools
Date of incident: March 19, 2018
Category: Government Restrictions
Attack against: Faith
Area of case: Education / Governmental / Political
The political party Equo Andalucía demanded that the Junta de Andalucía (Regional Government of Andalusia) exercise extreme vigilance to prevent public schools from organizing and celebrating Easter processions for children during Holy Week. Party leaders reminded the government that they had registered complaints about children's processions the previous year.
The Andalusian Education Inspection cancelled an Easter procession in 2017 due to time pressure from a secularist group.
