#suspensoalRACISMO (Fail Racism) is a social media campaign designed to bring greater visibility to the problem of racist bullying in the classroom..
The campaign was launched by civil society groups in support of all students who have suffered #racism and #bullying, and in particular to champion the cause of Camila—a girl of African descent from Madrid who suffered racist abuse at school—in a case heard by the courts on 8 October 2019.
For her own psychological and physical wellbeing, Camila's family were forced to move her to another school. They successfully sued the Community of Madrid, which was ultimately responsible for the running the state school she attended. The court found the authorities to be in breach of their duty of care and to have committed irregularities in applying protocols intended to prevent school and workplace bullying.
Such situations are rife in the educational community. However, given the failure by schools to apply existing protocols and to train teaching staff to combat #racism and #bullying, the great majority of victims of this blight on society opt to move their children to other centres.
