The parish of San Isidro de la Estación in Cártama, as well as the entrances to the parish hall and the office of Caritas, were spray painted with obscene images and phrases during the night of November 28th. The graffiti outraged the whole town and local police began an official investigation.

Six drawings of penises were sprayed on the facades of the buildings. The parish priest Francisco González explained that they wanted to make sure the acts were denounced, but also to diffuse the situation: "Surely this was [the work of hooligans], but it has already been cleaned and there is no need to give it more importance."
