Every time someone dies here in the islands as a result of domestic violence the Council Equality Network holds a short vigil on the Tuesday following the murder. So tomorrow, Tuesday 30 April, everyone is invited to join them in the Plaza Zerolo (beside the main post office and health centre in Adeje town) at 7pm to remember Sylvia and her son, whose lives were so tragically cut short recently – see HERE.

For anyone concerned about it being in Spanish, Adeje Ayuntamiento’s Communications Officer Clio O’Flynn will be there and is happy to help with any translation required during this public gesture of support for victims, their families and loved ones, and condemnation of this social scourge. 

In terms of domestic violence, please do be aware that the law defines it as any act of physical or psychological violence, including attacks against sexual freedom, threats, humiliation, coercion, sexual abuse, or deprivation of liberty: violencia de genero does not have to be physical to be classified as domestic abuse. Please have a look at THIS page for full information in English and further links to resources, advice and contacts for assistance from the range of measures put in place here by the authorities to help people at risk.
